He shouldn't be scarred of the potty just the person. So just start setting the timer for every 20mins and get rid of the diapers 100% and give tons and tons and tons of praise.

Oh my, I would probably just leave the potty seat out for him and encourage him to use it. Don't push it, he'll probably need more time. Be sure to praise him when he tries to use it, whether he succeeds or not. If he has accidents, just help him change and let him know that accidents happen. You'll probably need to be extra gentle when he has accidents so that he'll learn that he won't be punished for it.

We had "potty candy" that was given specifically after using the potty. We used a pretty good size jar. When they were all gone, they got to pick out new undies and I made a little ribbon that said "I'm a big boy, and use the potty!" Good luck.
