Folks, is there anyone who can help me figure out which replacement motor to get for my oil burner? Here are some photos of the current setup:

    You might try Grainger and see if you can find one with exactly the same specs...

    Carlin makes a PSC motor for these burners, part# 98022S.

    Thanks guys. I think a Carlin 98022 motor will do the job and FW Webb, which is close to me, has it for $64 and will let me return it if it doesn't fit. I'm going to go get it now.

    PSC all the way, just check your coupling length. I find the motor shafts can be slightly longer on PSC motors, Some Beckett anyway, and can cause a problem down the road
