Anyone know of a fitting made to terminate jacketed MC after it's been pulled into a chase? All burial, so no can do for replacement.
Installed a twin set of 350's up into conduit chases for what I thought was to be an I-Line panel(outdated, lousy drawings etc.). It turns out a four section MCC was ordered and now I've got no place to terminate the cable ends.
A couple options have been tossed about: loop the cables up around to the top (ugly), wireways or LB's off the side (no clearances).
I'm pretty sure this isn't the first time this has happened so hoping somebody can give me more ideas.
Thanks..........DML

Is it too late to insist on a fifth feeder termination section in the MCC fabrication? [at others’ expense of course.]

Already onsite; we're remote. I don't have any more room, planned for trannies on one side and a gen disconnect on the other.
The space is used up and more because the MCC is bigger than the I-Line.
