Wiring Sub-Panel

I am wiring a 90 Amp subpanel off of my 200 AMP main. I purchased AL #2 wire to do the job. It appears that the #2 nuetral wire may not fit into the neutral bar in the main box. If this is the case...what would I do and still be within code?

Thanks,
Jason

After studying the neutral bar...I noticed that two holes on the bar are larger than the others. The neutral wire should easily fit in one these holes.

Thanks,
Jason

Separate Equipment Grounding Conductor required.

Be sure that you run a separate Equipment Grounding Conductor in the feeder and keep the neutral conductors insulated and separate in the feeder supplied panel.
