Question PaveLow: Adding 240v Receptacle

Your help appreciated. Our 24 y/o drop-in oven in 24 y/o home, finally burned out. I had to cut wires from oven to junction box (on floor under oven) to remove oven. New drop-in oven comes with 3 prong, 220 plug. How do I add a 220 outlet to wiring shown in photos at attached link, please? The outlet and wiring will need to stay below oven. Wiring is: Stabiloy AA-8000 series type SE cable style U type XHHW CDRS 6 AL (UL) 1987. Unsure if wiring throughout house is aluminum. Circuit breaker is in the outside power box. Two photos at below link. Thank you in advance. Tom G.

Is the breaker 40 amps or less. What is the amps requirement of the oven? Since you said 3 prong plug I assume the oven is 240 volt only not 120/240 volt correct?

Which of the plugs in this list do you have? Plug and Receptacle Configurations
