1) Cast set screw connectors aren't approved for grounding/service riser (connector missing set screws)
2) Top far left connector is missing it's set screw
3) If the neutral is a #4 or larger, blue wire nuts are only listed up to #6 CU

The missing set-screws are ones I noticed. I never thought about the listing for the Big Blue.

But I think I've spied two more. So there's still three yet to be identified.

Also unsure of the situation, but possibly the feeder conduit is used as a EGC here. Which would mean the bonding screw would need to be removed?

Wire on 30A breaker seems undersized

Possibly 210.4(D), given the raceway(s)>

(D) Grouping. The ungrounded and grounded circuit con-
ductors of each multiwire branch circuit shall be grouped
by cable ties or similar means in at least one location within
the panelboard or other point of origination.

Given the age, I think this install predates that.

That's one more!

Dryer is wired with three #12s. There's also a 30a SP on the right side.

The metal conduit notwithstanding, if the neutral is diconnected, there is no fault current path at the MBJ.

EDIT: Nevermind. I see the black wire spliced on.

Well, you can claim it's five more since there's five #12s on 30a breakers.

Typical 3-wire. Or at least it was. I've retasked that for a general-purpose circuit as the HO doesn't want the dryer recep any more.
