Unhappy Air conditioner external motor

I am not familiar with AC terminology so bear with me. I tried to take off the grill on the top to paint it. Didn't realize motor was attached only to this grill. I managed to put it all back together but in the process, one of 4 screws attaching the motor to the grill broke. Looks like the screw is inside the motor housing. I doubt that 3 of 4 screws is sufficient to hold the motor (I would guess it will vibrate a lot!). Is it likely that I can replace the screw if I take the top off the housing? I'm not looking at it right now so I can't say if it looks like the top cover on the housing would come off easily. Its a York airconditioning unit with an A.O. Smith motor. The model number of the air conditioner is H2RA060S06D. The motor number model is F48E15A48.

More than likely that stud goes all the way through the motor. You should be able to get it out from the other end and go to the hardware store and get a piece of all-thread the same size and a few nuts and washers. Cut it to the proper length, put it through the motor and bolt it back up.
