I have the same saw. Did you check the motor speed figures on the new motors? 1725/850 is what mine lists, yours?

If you are comfortable with disassembling the motor, take it apart; clean the commutator, scrape the brushes, and lubricate the bearings (use a Teflon grease). reassemble and see if that solves the overheating problem.
While you are at it, make sure all the pivot points are well lubricated, anything that is binding will contribute to the overheating.

Have your say...
