John T. I had to re-read your post above and I see where the grounding bar and neutral are not connected on a new sub panel.

My brother Billy Bob added a sub panel to that little house years ago. His sub panel was another 60 amp main service panel of the 1950 variety. From this additional main panel he came off one of the fuses at the bottom and ran a #10 hot and a neutral to one side of a 220 disconnect box. If I wire into this disconnect box with three #10's what would I do with the green wire. Or do I really need it. Or is there a better way,

Sorry, I'm havin a hard time following what Billy Bob actually did. Having hard time figuring whats a sub and whats a main etc without a picture/diagram...Its okay to feed only 120 volts (Hot and Neutral) out of a main or a sub, but you want to also carry the bare/green Equipment Ground for a 3 wire circuit (Hot, Neutral, Ground). At any sub or sub of a sub the Equipment Gorund would bond to the case/frame BUT NOT THE NEUTRAL. So if theres a bare/green Ground running out to wherever, bond it to the case/frame and also to outgoing loads BUT NOT TO THE NEUTRAL,,,,,,,,,
