1) If busbar looks good it probably is good.
Usually when bus is bad, it has burned appearance, and looks like it is ready to crumble or is crumbling.

2) Problem with bad busbar, we sometimes add subpanel next to main box.
Buy subpanel box Home center or electric supply.
Square-D subpanel shown on following page came from electric supply.

3) You can also add tandem breaker to main box.
Tandem breaker fits over one bus finger, but is actually two separate breakers.
Then double-up two lightly used circuits so you have room to move breakers around.
See image showing tandem.

Hi,

I would get an amp metetr on it and see what the load is.... if it is running continually at over 40 amp. then you are overloading it...and need to shed some load...

If it is not then the breaker is going bad and needs to be replaced...

Connecting 12 batteries in series would give slightly more than 61 volts. Considering that under load voltage will drop then it should be ok. Breaker goes between battery and motor on positive wire.

Tip

Repair broken power cord


I have a 50-ft power cord for my electric pole saw. In an accident, the saw cut the power cord. It's long cable and I want to save it. My method keeps the cable lean and retain it's strength. It's not water-proof, but I never use a pole saw in a rainy day.

If you make your point of reference the flywheel (starter side) of the motor then rotation is clockwise. If your point of reference is the alternator or the end opposite the motor flywheel, then it will be CCW.

There are many ways to start. First, the starter is weak, and the second is that the starter does not move. If the latter, check the controller for signal output. If there is no signal output, check the battery for voltage? If there is pressure, the controller may be broken.
