Powerwinch windlass info?

Does anyone have any info on this old Powerwinch windlass? It was made in Briggeport Connecticut USA
This windlass was installed by the PO on our 36’ sail boat. It is in the stern lazerett and works. We are looking for a manual so I can determine what size buss to use for it and what size circuit breaker. I think the current circuit breaker is 30 amps.
Also what size cable to replace the old one with. I am thinking 2 awg. That’s what the old ones look like I think. They are automotive I think.

Here is a link to one on eBay but no info
