    Have an older Fontaine V-box. The 8hp Briggs kicked the bucket. Does anyone know the best place to get the exact motor for this sander, a Fontaine parts dealer online, or just convert to electric???

    Thanks in advance.

    By the way, what ever happened to Fontaine? Does anyone know the history of the company? Were they bought out by someone, etc....??

    i bought a replacement motor for a leaf blower from smallenginewarehouse.com very fast shipping and cheaper than my dealer can get them for too.
