DC or AC motor?

The 1.5 HP DC Baldor went down. The commutator had all kinds of carbon fouling so I took the back end apart to clean and re-assembled. Nada. Thought the VS controller was bad but it tested fine.

Considering this DC Leeson as a replacement since I can still use the VS controller.

Scott at Tru Grit suggested the AC over the DC motors but I'm unfamiliar with those me?
