For the neutral buss bar, a bonding screw goes through the buss bar into the box. Same for the ground buss bar. Usually, neutral does not meet ground until the meter, so there may only be a bonding screw for the ground buss bar. Look carefully, check with electricians.

SOURCE: I am trying to install

I'm assuming since it's a Homeline panel you're using a HOM2100 breaker. If it stripping then you must have a short circuit in your 100A circuit, or the breaker is defective. Disconnect your load from the breaker, and turn main on. Be sure you have the correct load conductors connected to the breakers. Typically red and black on the breaker, white on neutral bar. Bare to ground bar

SOURCE: can I change a 100 amp main breaker with a 200 amp main breaker on a homeline box

NO! The main breaker in each box matches the components of that box. Although it might fit, you are looking at a major code violation and possible fire danger. Which if you wanted to sell it later, could give you problems even if it did work and you didn't get have a fire.
Each circuit breaker box it rated to an amperage level and the main breaker is sized for that rating. Find the box tag and check what it is rated at.

I checked my code sheet, and only the ground bus is to be bonded to the box. The box comes with a screw that will bond the bus to the box through a bus mounting hole, the threaded hole is down there, behind the bus. The neutral does not get bonded to the box.

Problem is not clear.
You have 200 Amp cut off by meter, with 3 wires from meter box:
2 Hot wires and a ground.

You have 200 amp service panel.
Does the ground wire enter service panel from cut off box?

How do i know which breaker goes where into my house.


If the installer didn't fill in the label inside the door you're relegated to turning one off and checking what turns off in the house. You can do this by yourself but it's a lot easier with someone in the house to tell you what shut off as you switch off each breaker in the box. Use things like plug-in lamps or hair dryers in outlets to know when they go dead.

Subpanel hookup


Yes the maximum size branch circuit breaker that will fit in a residential load center is 100 amps. I would recommend that you calculate the amount of power that you need the sub panel to handle, then add any additional loads you may need in the future. Hopefully this is less than 100 amps. I would recommend that you check with your local electrical inspector to make sure your installation meets all local and national codes before proceeding with the install.
