This IS the "before" pictures!!! Can't you tell that crack in the second picture needs to be caulked?

This is a very typical service in my neighborhood. The vertical conduit ran through a concrete pad. When the pad settled it pulled the conduit out of the meter socket. I did a service across the street last year that had done the same thing.

The distribution panel is a Federal Pacific. The electrical contractor saved where he could, as breakers were available at the time.

This was a pretty good job except the commute was a killer (90 seconds).

I was going to post some "after" pictures, but I'm not sure I want the vultures picking on my bones.

That's not a neutral for a GFCI is it,
Electure?.
Just a wild guess.

That's two different wires, guys. It does look like one, but they must cross on the right to look like one. The upper connection was a 240 volt circuit for the clothes dryer.

The pipes pill out of the meters around here too. They say with groung freezing things can move around a bit. Plus not compacting the soil. We take those uot and put in a underground pedistal.

Besides the meter did you pass your inspection Dave? Doesent anything pass in Crystal Lake?
