Sears/Craftsman Contractor Series 10" Belt Drive 3hp Table Saw

The name plate is not legible, it has a 3hp electric motor which is burned out. I also need a fence and miter gauge for it. It is in pretty rough shape with a lot of surface rust, but everything on the saw still works.
The table is 30" wide x 63" long, the motor is Model # 823514 Mfg Model T55BXHK-470, the Mfg # 04953, 1 1/2hp @ 3450 rpm. The table is made out of either cast iron or steel and it's extremely heavy.
I'm building a heavy duty base for it and would love to get this saw working in my wood shop. It is very sturdy and I will be able to do cabinet shop quality work, starting with my kitchen cabinets.
I have been unable to find a new motor for it, and would like to know if I can retrofit a newer motor and similar base plate. I don't believe the fence and miter gauge will be a problem, the fence should be about 27". I've used a similar table saw way back in the 70's
