comfortmaker furnace; i've done the hard part by taking the blower motor out

so i've been searching online and i'm not entirely convinced that i'll be ordering the right motor. I believe my motor is the culprit when the fan is on it makes a horrible sound like its trying to eat its way out of the furnace. after taking the entire assembly out of the housing i disassembled the motor from the rotating fan and pulled it out....there is oil/grease on part of the motor thats was closest to the ground. the fan doesnt look like its hitting anything so it definently looks like its the motor.

how do i go about making sure i have the right one? i have plugged in the model number and i get a bunch of hits but i see a lot of universals and I know that will be a pain to get the wiring correct. i just want to get a plug and play blower that even possible.

the model is of furnace is:
80+ single stage category I furnace.

blower motor model is:
GE Motors
HP 1/2

i can post a pic of the label of the blower motor if it would help. i need to buy this thing ASAP. its hot as hades durung the day in the house.

thanks in advance.

No, many are 3 speed. And they may need a different sized capacitor.

Your furnace model number you posted. Is not the whole model number.

But any 1050 or 1075 RPM motor of the same frame and shaft size will work,. Make sure its the same amp draw and voltage.
