I've changed out several. The breakers are next to impossible to find. A few used ones floating around, but no new ones that I have been able to find. The busses are arranged from top to bottom instead of side by side. I think I may have 1 or 2 panels at the shop. I will see if I can dig 1 up this week and get you some pictures.

Welcome to the forum!
We changed-out one a while ago, and that was the only one I have come across in 25 years.

We held on to the branch breakers, God knows why, and I can't remember the buss layout of the panel. I'll have to look in the shop & see if the CB's are still around, or they found the way to the dump!

Push-Matics were not a 'big' item here in this part of NJ, although we come upon one occasionally.

Bulldog Electric was bought by ITE Circuit Breaker around 1956.
ITE was first bought by Gould and then their Low Voltage Distribution line was sold to Siemens around 1983.

Siemens still manufactures and sells new Pushmatic breakers.
