How about the mixing the alum (service entrance wires) and the copper tap? Can’t see photo well enough but I’ll bet there is no past.
Also on the 240v tap I would have used the black and red not the black and white. Check the other end and see if the white is identified as a hot. Again I'll bet not.
The service appears to 100amp. The wires for the tap are not properly protected from overload. Even if they go to a sub panel with a breaker, if there were mechanical damage to the wire causing it to short the breaker may not pick this up.
