electric furnace help

I have a Bryant Electric furnace that runs for about 2 minutes and then trips the breaker. I've checked out the sequencer, the limit switches, the fusible links, the fuses and the transformer. I also went ahead and changed out the thermostat, fan relay, and two of the three elements but still doing the same thing. Can anyone give me an idea of what else possible it could be. Thanks!

If possible, take the breakers temp. and check ALL your terminals and connectors. I've encountered quite a number of faulty breakers on electric heating systems.

electric furnace help

Thanks Undone! I will certainly check the breaker and take the temp of it. That's about the only thing I haven't done yet. I did check almost all the connections and the amp draws seemed okay on everything. Luckily this is a vacant home and I have a little time to fix it. I'm only a second year student out of HVAC, so still asking questions. I didn't think it was any of the stuff I checked out, but I replaced mostly everything cause this is a very, very old furnace and I'm trying to keep the property company from having to replace it. Thanks again. I'll try and let you know if this worked out for me.
