Yes there are also 2 screw holes up top and the missing section looks like a fat cross so I can imagine it was a rectangular piece with two flaps sticking out on the side to secure it by the screws
I could have sworn I replied to you yesterday. Oldsheimers I guess.
The motor you have is a proprietary motor that Century built for a customer. Century is now AO. Smith. It was built to their specs, and could just be a different color or a different shaft size. The reason I know is the "spec" number is missing along with a misleading catalog number.
Go to AO. Smith's web site and look for a distributor/service center/partner in your area. Give them the number; EMI 9-302016-01.
They may be able to tell you what cap it uses or they may send you to the customer that had the motor built special for them. They will have this cap on their shelf.
Either way you look at it, ultimately AO. Smith is where you start.
Ps.....Do the blue wires have terminals on them????????????
