Default 1978 Tucker electrical question

This is not from my Tucker (too new!), just a fellow Tucker owner looking to me for help and I don't have the answer. This circuit breaker apparently failed and the owner has no power to the cab. He wants to replace it but doesn't know the current rating. Can anyone help identify the current rating of this circuit breaker or offer a replacement part number? Thanks!

Can you read the numbers on it?

https://www.ebay.com/i/280961354790?chn=ps&dispctrl=1

For example this one on Ebay is 150 amps.

I can barely read it in our picture but it looks like 150.

Unfortunately you can't read any of the numbers on the circuit breaker, he is still looking for some guidance on what sort of amperage he should use for that year Tucker sno-cat.

It's 4 guage wire and about 5 feet of wire running to the battery and a little more than that running to the distribution block.

The good thing is there are lots of great resettable options out there now to replace it with. That way if it was just an odd surge, you would be able to get the power back to the cab if you were far from the trail head.
