Question parts for old International series 950 furance

Daughter has a series TAC 950 furance installed in a trailer house she is renting. She was complaining that the heater wasn't working and the landlord hadn't done anything, so I went over to look at it.

What I found was this: The cord to the motor was frayed and shorted out where it went into the housing of the motor. Also seems the upper limit switch was not working properly.

I took the motor apart and rewired it, however, it doesn't not spin fast enough to move air properly. So am thinking there must be some bad windings in the motor and needs to be replaced. I can stop the squiral cage with my hand, so there is very little torque being applied to the cage also.

My problem is I can not find any listing of parts for this heater anywhere. All the information I have is listed below, if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be appreciated.

I don't think they are still in business. If that is the company I think it is, they were bought out by Nordyne many years ago.
