HI im from texas and got a couple questions im changing my box beacuse the old box was an original and also a dreaded federal here is my new box the colored lines are the main conductor routing of my old box. the other lug on the grounding strip had two neutral bare coppers tied in from my two 220 volt 50 amp breakers. is this proper routing? also what do i do with the metal rod shown on the lower right hand side thanks

#1 Do you have a permit for this?
#2 Not sure, have not done this before, call a real electricion to come hook this up for you.
Fine to want to save money, but playing with something that can kill you or burn your house down is not a great idea.
Just a guess, is this very old, needing to be upgraded wiring in the house?
Just wondering why such a small panel.

Don't know what the metal rod is all about but, is this a main panel or a sub-panel?

not sure what your talking about in regards to the 2 neutral bare coppers
