The most likely causes in their order of probability are: 1) water somewhere in the circuit causing the hot wire to ground; 2) a legitimate trip caused by a defect in a device plugged into the circuit; and 3) a defective GFCI breaker. In the first case, wait until it has been dry for about a week and see if it trips. In the second case, make sure there is nothing plugged into the circuit and try resetting. In the third case go ahead and put the regular breaker in, then put a GFCI outlet into the first box downstream from the breaker. If installed according to the directions, that outlet should protect all of the outlets downstream.

You can Google the catalog number for that breaker. You can also try to call local electrical contractors as one can usually find at least one contractor who has saved every old part that they have removed over the years. Also try ebay.
Unfortunately, even if you do find the correct breaker it will probably be very expensive :-(

I specialize and timers and electrical devices
Looking up your breaker at Eaton, I found the chart that shows below:
Other than the chart, I do not know the specifics of your breaker.
You can add a comment, and I can help you with your wiring project.
Another good source of information about specifics are your local Graybar electric supply house, or any local supplier that specializes in electric wiring.
Having a local electrician stop by and look at your project for a fee might be a good investment long term because that person knows local codes and restrictions.
The #1 Data Table from manual shows CU/AL which is copper/aluminum
2/0 wire fits CH145 CH245 CH150S breakers
