Any idea what I could get for these on Ebay "as is".
What would the motors alone be worth if I replace the bearings?
Would these motors be good as compressor motors?
Any idea how to get the pump impellers off the shaft, so that I can rebuild
them and sell them as complete units? The impeller seems to be pressed or
