It’s got a start capacitor, so it is an induction motor… not much can go bad on those, and properly cared for, it will last forever. Anything that may need addressing in the future (bearings, capacitor, centrifugal switch) should not be too difficult to fix if you have a modicum of mechanical ability. While I haven’t played with one, based on the parts diagram, it appears to be a geared arbor coupling, so no belts involved.
