Are you looking for discontinued part #3480015?

Did you look on fleabay?
Wow, Look what I found….

They can be hard to find, and expensive when you do find one.
Totally surprised the one on fleabay popped when i searched?

Have passed on buying a couple cheap PM66 due to motor mounting bracket issues. Story I heard was motor mount tabs/ears would crack/break if blade was stopped violently, or you hard hit motor end hanging outside the machine.
Fabricating a c-face motor mount typically requires machining tolerances for accurate hole placement? If you go that route, might want to start with a Hydraulic Pump-to-Motor Mount for c-face motor. Then cut/weld on new mounting ears? At least that was direction I was considering. YMMV

Best Luck.
