1) Tork P47 tripper is correct tripper for 1101 timer.
Trippers are brass-colored and black-colored.
If they do not fit timer dial you might need new timer.
2) Buy new 120Volt indoor/non-weathertight Tork T1011
To identify timer for sure:
3) Google search Tork 1101 shows timer cost $83
4) Intermatic cross reference shows replacement is T-101 indoor/non-weathertight
Amaxon sells T101 for 43$:
5) Raintight/outdoor: Aplus and Lowes sell raintight outdoor T-101R for $71

Tork terminal X is T101 terminal A

2) 120Volt circuit has 1 black hot wire and 1 white neutral wire and 1 bare ground wire. Ground wires connect to green screw and to each other.

One cable arrives from breaker box.
One cable goes to Load (light, fan, motor, pump etc)

b) white connects to terminal X
5) Cable going to Load
a) Load black connects to terminal 2
