Before you give up, check whether that motor has one or two capacitors. (Usually a start cap and a run cap). Sometimes only one, though. They are easy to replace and not expensive. Doesn’t matter what brand, doesn’t need to be Sears. Ah, I see above that you did do the capacitor. Still, wouldn’t hurt to check.
