sub feeder service entrance

Im wondering if there are any limitation by NEC for running service wires next to a chiney? The wires are jacketed, i know the best way to do would be to run them inside conduit.

The wire i got is 4-4-4 there are two bare copper wires inside, can i use a split bolt inside the panel and connect them to a jacketed wire for my neutral?

Can i run my bare ground and staple it to the joist or does it have to be in conduit?

Thanks Chris

A three conductor cable would NOT have 2 bare wires in it.

What size is the ground wire and are you running parallel or perpendicular to the joists?

Are you trying to feed a subpanel in the same building or a detached building?

the wire i was given to work with is 4-4-4 there are only two insulated conductors inside of it, and bare copper.

the ground wire is 6 awg

the building is attached but the panel is going to be over 100' away from the main.

You need four conductor cable, as I stated in the other post.
