Stopping a Runaway Westerbeke

Question raised about a Westerbeke that wouldn’t shutdown. The circuit breaker right on the engine may have tripped. I and others have reported this situation as having occurred in the past. Westerbeke reports that the breakerspring can weaken over time. I have a spare, which I picked up to replace that on our ’93 B-38 but could not loosen one screw, 3 years ago, so left the old breaker after shooting it up w/ WD-40. The spare is on-board when I need it! Bob 1994 Cat-Morgan 38cc #44 “LaBoo iv Vancouver, B.C. <>
