The pressure port to the pressure switch can become restricted.
A straightened paper clip can be used to clean it out.

Duly noted. UPDATE... My mother found a reliable guy to come out and check it out... Apparently he fixed the problem, with no added parts, just some labor. Unfortunately I wasn't home to see what he did, but I'm gonna call him tomorrow cause I'm curious as to what was the problem. I was informed that the guy that came last night was "FULL" of it. That motor obviously wasn't wrong or not capable of being able to pull vacuum, it's running now with no problem. He actually wanted to sell us the complete assembly.... Plate, mount, motor, blower wheel and little fan on front of motor... I told him that's BS. How will plates n mounts make a motor operate the way it should. Was also informed that the guy from last night swapped a bunch of wires around, probably thinking we're DUMB enough to pay the $750 he quoted us to fix the furnace. None the less, I guess it's working now... I'll post back when I figure out what the guy from today did, maybe it'll help someone else.

I have the same furnace. 58ss080-bc.. today the flames wouldnt stay on.. prolly due to frozen gas pipes/condensation.. its -20 outside today. So i plugged the blower motor (bottom motor) into a wall outlet.. common (white), and red (low) and it started to stay on.. for your problem sir, id say you have bad circuit board. There are two boards in the furnace.. get those replaced and youll be fine. Try repluging in the harnesses and quick connects going to boards.. check wiring. Take out boards and inspect the back of them for burnt traces. I got new boards in mine when i had the same problem as you.. gotta have the pilot ignitor cleaned every now n then.. which u can do your self if careful. today, for me its just the gas pipe was cold/condensated. But the wall outlet to the blower motor can save you in a pinch if u have sputtery burners. or a board that wont run ur motor.. nice bypass. Good luck they are old furnaces.. touchy
