Recently picked up this Craftsman 101.07301 and the wiring is in real bad shape and I don’t feel safe powering it up. Is this motor safe to use if I replace the cord? I’m a mechanic, but no electrician.

Neither am I an electrician, but I think any time you "do not feel safe" doing something is time to get proper advice from somebody who is actually there with you. No amount of description or photographs can substitute for the nuances of being there first-hand. Pushing the experience level is one thing, but this is a hobby -- if something is outside your comfort level, step aside.

I would install a new 3-wire cord with the ground wire attached to the motor's case. And I would power it from a GFCI protected outlet.
