If you're dead sure you wired the motor correctly when you replaced it,, then that leaves the timer as the only electrical part you have not dealt with.

Timer for this model-

You could remove the plastic cover,turn the barrell,look for burn marks and that would indicated which set of points was burred and/or arcing.

I looked at the timer barrel and no signs of arching, other than normal wear and tear.
Can this be caused by other factors other than electrical?
