I have 120/240 volt Trumbull breaker boxes with 3 & 3 pole…

Customer Question
I have 120/240...

I have 120/240 volt Trumbull breaker boxes with 3 & 3 pole breakers installed in 1949. The panels are held in with 2 coil springs held down with washer & nut. But, all the circuit breaker panel companies have zero information on their dimensions. Thus, so far I can not upgrade panel. Any ideas on getting dimensions for replacement panels?

Contractor's Assistant: How old is the system in question? And have you consulted an electrician yet?

Like I said, 1949. Electricians won't come. And I asked a lot of them.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

All I need is replacement panel dimensions so I can decide what fits best.
