Thanks for the reply LexM...
I called an HVAC company that gets high ratings for price and quality in our area. They said that they could replace the motor with a GE motor, but the GE motor will vibrate alot of York ACs and on an old unit like ours the additional vibration could add to the risk of loose connections, leaks, etc. He said he'd put in the GE if we want it, but he strongly recommended using the motor model that York put in originally (he is NOT a York dealer, so he's not trying to sell York products). The York distributorship is 75 miles away, so they are shipping it to him UPS. The motor replacement will include the capacitor replacement. I was quoted a price of about $400 for parts, travel & labor. Any thoughts on all of this???
