I need to replace the motor on my 8525
I am considering the harbor freight 1 hp motor, has anyone else used one of these? Also on the parts schematic it shows some rubber bushings for the motor mounting bolts, does anyone have a source for these?

Thanks!

The closer you can get to the original mounting footprint the easier the install will be.
I've heard that some Horror Fright motors are not reliable though-
Grainger carries a number of different types of rubber bushings and mounts
