Converting older style electric dryer

Hi. I have a 220-volt Kenmore dryer (Model 110) with an older style 3-prong cord, which I would like to convert to a modern 4-prong cord. The three wires are screwed on to posts at the back of the dryer, with a green grounding wire running from the top of the neutral post to the outside of the dryer frame. How would I go about changing this to a 4-prong cord; especially, where would the ground wire on the new cord attach. Thanks for your help, DougH.

Remove the green jumper, and attach the fourth (grounding) wire of your cord to the frame where the jumper was attached.

Thanks John. I thought, as you suggested, that I should remove the original ground wire, but I wanted to make sure. I will relate how things turn out when I get the project finished (hopefully later this week). Yours, DougH
