Boy everyone is avoiding this question like the plague.

Your discription is throwing us quit a bit. It is not common to have that many green scews. Then you speak of a black screw, then an x and a y. I suspect the x and y are where the hots go. However we need a much better form of communication on this one before you wire it in. If it were me, I would take this to your inspector, an electrician, or a supply house where someone can look at what you have to give you accurate advice.

BE careful

The hots (black and red) connect to X and Y, which are the two slots paralell to each other on the outside. The
Ground connects to the U shaped slot, and the neutral connects to the middle slot, which is kind of offset
from the hot slots. On a dryer outlet the configuration is
the same, except the neutral is L shaped.
