The 24 volt timers are set up for a completely different type of sprinkler system. You could make it work on yours, but you would have to re wire the whole system. And it would cost 10 times the amount of a new timer. There is no way around replacing the whole timer. You can replace the clock part of the timer, but it would probably cost as much or more than the whole timer. But I can tell you that if you oil the gears on the back of the clock a couple of times a year, it will make your timer last a lot longer.

T103 has 120Volt clock motor, so we can wire this timer.
T103 timer is rated for 30 amps and 2horsepower and your blowers use 28 amps.
So we're getting close to max on the timer. Hopefully blowers won't all be started at one time since motors draw maximum amperage when they start.
However, you need 30 amp breaker and orange 10 gauge wire for that much amperage >> unless only one blower is turned ON at any given time.
Always match wire size, amperage of breaker and amperage of Load or it will trip the breaker.
If you put 30 amp breaker on size 10 wire it is good. But 30 amp breaker on smaller size 14 or 12 gauge wire is fire hazard.
Add a comment at any time, and I will respond
Look at the basics:
You have 2 cables.
One cable comes from breaker box.
Other cable goes to three 120V plugs (120V is same as 110V).
Each cable has black-wire, white-wire and bare-copper-ground-wire.
How to wire the timer.
Timer has 5 terminals: A 1 2 3 4
A) Cable from breaker box:
White wire from breaker connects to terminal A
Black-wire from breaker connects to terminal 1
B) Cable going to 3 plugs
Black wire to plugs connects to terminal 2
White wire to plugs connects to terminal A
Ground wires connect to green ground screw.
Terminals 3 and 4 are not used in this case.
Here is a wiring diagram that shows 120Volt from breaker box and 120Volt going to Load

Testimonial: "Great help quickly thanks"
You can replace the 133T1115A switch if that's the suspect part:
Other than the switch, the only other thing affecting timer would be the trippers.
