Neutral not bonded, right?

Recommended Posts

Doesn't look like. And that lug isn't installed as it's listing specifies, I'll betcha. That's what a neutral bus or ground bus is for.

You've also got a stranded conductor pared down to fit into the neutral bus slot.

Are you sure? What about the enclosure bond with the stranded copper; doesn't that run up to the neutral bar, thereby bonding ground, enclosure, and neutral?

I'm not sure, but I see older panels that are bonded in varying ways.

Like Jim, I saw that screw in the first photo and said to myself, "Yes it is!"

Look at the panel schematic when you get those older panels. Lots of times I've had unfamiliar older panels that I thought weren't bonded. Then I checked the schematic to see where the panel was supposed to be bonded and then look at the panel again and, voila', most of the times there it was.
