Angry circuit breaker for alumium wiring

I need to replace a circuit breaker in my mobile home. What steps are necessary to complete this task. Also, the existing circuit breaker is a
bryant BR1515. I understand that Bryant went out of business. What comparable manufacturer has the equivalent for this circuit breaker. Also, I noticed some of the alumium wiring is burnt at the receptacle. Can I use a
copper wire (what guage) with noalox and a wire nut to repair this problem. Thank you

Thomas & Betts make a twin 15 {TB1515} that will work in a Bryant panel.I should caution you though that it is a code violation {although very common} to use one manufacturers breaker in anothers panel.There are wirenuts on the market that will make Cu-Al splices.
