Hi Fred,
The towers came with several different model motors over the years.  The 
way to check it is to look at the tag on the side of the motor. If it is a  
dual voltage motor the tag will be stamped 120/240vac. If that is the case, it 
 will be an easy matter of moving a few wires and wire nuts to change the  
voltage. Dual voltage motors have the wiring diagram also printed on the 
side.  Pretty easy job usually.
If it is a single voltage motor, call a motor distributor like Grainger.  
Give them the voltage, horsepower, phase, frame number, rotation, and duty 
cycle  off of the motor tag and tell them to cross reference a replacement 
dual voltage  motor.
