    Someone please help. I want to install a 40 amp double pole breaker and run
    the line ( 8/3 ) to the receptacle for a 225 amp stick welder. The 8/3 line
    has a black and a red ( Hot, correct? ) and 2 groups of bare wires ( one has
    3, the other has 4 wires...neutral and ground? If so, which one goes to the
    neutral and ground bus bar? ) Also, does it matter which pole gets the red
    or black? At the other end, the receptacle has 3 provisions...one is marked
    AL ( copper colored ), one is CU ( silver colored ) the other one green.
    Which wire goes where?? I'm still left with another group of bare
    wires...and I'm sure somebody will tell me just where to stick them! :) Any
    help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks..John
