On the other hand, the main bonding jumper may be the same color as the other screws in the neutral terminal bar because the panelboard might have been installed before the new rule was added.
I remember when an Electrical Inspector from Portland Oregon proposed the green color back in 1990, because he also found it difficult to find that screw too. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
Can we see a close up picture!
Also, if the label on the equipment indicates: "Suitable for use as service equipment only" then the neutral will be factory bonded to the cabinet.
Look at the label to find out if that is true. If the word "only' is missing that that means that the panelboard can be used at the service when the MBJ is installed, or as a subpanel when it is not installed. ![icon_biggrin.gif](upload://iKNGSw3qcRIEmXySa8gItY6Gczg.gif)
