  • national motors

    I am looking for spare parts for national motor gear box. I've called AMF and they don't have all of the parts to rebuild them (surprise). I've found some of them at Stahl's. Also are the gear boxes enterchangeabale. Can a GE or Westinghouse gear box work with a national motor? If anyone knows where I might be able to get parts please let me know and thank you.
    I might not be as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I was ever was.

    hello all,

    Vantage carries some.

    If you want bearings, try a local source first.

    Most of the stuff we use comes from Stahl's or Bob's Business.

      Joe, as far as a national motor stator matching up with a westinghouse or G. E gearbox no dice. They are apples and oranges.

        I was able to locate some parts as well as some whole combo motors at JCP Contruction and Classic bowling Products a couple of months ago. They might still have some left.
