The second photo on page one of this post shows a label disclosing the motor is a standard 1.5 HP, 3450 rpm, TEFC 56 frame motor, continuous duty rated (important detail - not a "compressor duty" motor).

Seems I was way low on the price guess. Its been a while since I've bought a new electric motor.

Leeson 1.5 HP motor

How would I even go about mounting the motor the other way? The pully is all the way at the back of the unit already, the Motor would have to live outside of the unit If I mounted it the other way. At least I think it would

Yes, you would have a knee buster for sure. Sometimes advice is thrown pretty fast and easy around here.

I have two jointers. One is sitting against the wall, and the other is sitting beside my drum sander. I can't walk behind either one to knock my knees on. The mounting base not fitting is easily fixed. If I was in this situation I would gladly make an even trade with a 3 phase motor for a single phase motor that turns the wrong way.

When you say the mounting base is easily fixed, what do you have in mind?

There should be at least 4 holes in the factory mount. Bolt up two door hinges using two of the holes. The base should only be thin metal so drilling new holes if necessary isn't hard. Then screw a 2x12 on the door hinges. Mount the motor on the 2x12 which sticks out of the base. The weight of the motor will be sufficient to tighten the belt, but if you don't want the motor lifting up when you start it you could use a bolt to hold the board down on the opposite side as the hinges. You will have to buy a shorter belt to make this work.

I did almost exactly the same thing you did - bought an older Delta 8" extended bed and it had a 3hp motor in it. I knew it going in, but for $200 (if memory serves) I would have been crazy to pass on it.

I ran through all the options and decided since the motor it came with was rusted half to bits I'd be better off replacing it with a single phase motor. Ended up buying a 5hp Leeson motor for $250 that fit like a glove and runs on 220v.
