At some point

In the replacement of the 40 year old breaker box, one must just say “FuckIt” and just get the power back on.

This is doubly true when the person who installed the original box had no idea what he was doing in the first place. (and he has passed, so I can’t kick him in the ass)

It is now safe (I am amazed that thing didn’t burn the whole range down) if not to Code.

It will be to code in a day or two. And the power is back on in almost every place in the range.
