Default Replacement Porter Cable Router

I am wanting to get a replacement router motor as a backup. My Stinger II has a Porter Cable 890 motor on it now but all I can find is a 892, 893, and 895. Will any of these motors work with the mounting plates that I have?

Thanks

The PC892 is the 890 motor with a fixed base. You will have to remove the rack off the side of the motor (two screws) and the base and you are good to go. You may want to have some replacement brushes on hand as these wear out before the router needs replacing. The brushes can be replaced with the motor still mounted on the machine. The brushes are only sold as an assembly which makes them a little pricey.

For sure get some spare brushes, they are apt to go out any time.
Had a set go out on me a couple months ago in the middle of a cut, really sucked. Rarely get any warning, all you can do is replace them yearly or pop the top and get a visual.
A set last me around a year, pretty easy to replace.

[switch and/or power cord are also known to occasionally go bad]
