Please help identify neutral bond in generator!

diromsOctober 20, 2012

Need help identifying where neutral bond is in my generator wiring. attached is a pic of the wiring. i believe the neutral bond is at the far right. there is a short green wire coming off the ground screw and going to the neutral screw on the outlet. if i disconnect the wire to the neutral screw, is this effectively breaking the bond to neutral? am i missing any other step? Thanks

Yep, that looks like it is likely it. Pull that off the neutral and then take a ohm meter (while the generator is off and not connected to anything and verify there isn't another connection elsewhere. The ohms between neutral and ground should be infinite (or OL as the meters like to say).
