Removed your your email to help prevent spam....you can be contacted by PM or a reply to the post if anyone has any info.

Is that the maker of the whole fan...or just the motor? Please provide any other info from labels you can find..

Most attic fans are made by 2 or 3 manufacturers and you may get a motor for free.

That is just the replacement motor. Do you have the names of attic fans?

Broan-NuTone and Gibraltar are 2 that come to mind...

You'll need some of the info off the fan housing though.

They also sell motors for attic fans at places like Home Depot, Lowes and such. It may not be exactly like yours but may work with a slight modification.

Are we talking whole house evacuation fans or attic space roof mounted fans? If the latter, ditch it and install passive ridge vents. Motors on the attic space fans go out too fast. But they are replaceable.

The fan is embedded facing down on the attic floor, below which are louvers that open when the fan goes on and circulates air from the 2nd to the first floor. There are two ports (one at each end of the attic, that open when the fan goes on)

Emerson used to make a lot of attic fans under their own name and private labelled ones and Grainger also sold a lot of them under the Dayton brand too. You might try taking your old motor to a Grainger store, they'll have what ever you need. Or....try looking up your fan manufactuer's website for parts.
