How to install a junction block correctly...?

I have the junction block below:



Where do I hook the primary power wire? Does it matter? Are all lugs powered?

If you're wanting to "power up" one side with a single primary wire I think you have the wrong terminal block. You need one that has a contact strip attaching all the screw terminals on one side only.

You can buy the contact strip at Radio Shack that Daryl is talking about to join the block screws together. You can clip off the ones you don't need.

Usually there connected across from each other individually. You should be able to see a metal tab going across the block. You really should ohm them out to see what you got.
