I don't blame you for trying to justify your existence, but buying used appliance parts is a gamble at best. Atlantis motors has issues to begin with, so there's a damn good reason they ended up in the junyard. No doubt you and Fred Sanford make a good living scrapping what you can
If you really want to recycle things, take those motors to the scrap dealer and get paid so they can be melted back down and used to make new stuff. If old parts were worth re-selling, don't you think Sears and all the other greedy bastids would be doing it too?
There is a big difference between recycling and re-selling. Ebay is full of examples
