it sounds to me like you smoked your new starter. Take it off and see if they can exchage it for a new one.

Your relay is stuck, you need to replace it or you'll keep frying starts (when it happened to me I had the key out of the ignition and the starter still kept going.) For my '91 it was an easy fix, its bolted to the right fender with some heavy gauge wire going to it.

Good luck
