I am adding a new circuit for a detached garage. My dillema is that my Service Entrance Panels Ground/Neutral bar doesn't have a terminal lug big enough to accomodate a 2 gauge common or 6 gauge bare ground wire. My panel is a Bryant 200 amp rated panel and they are no longer in business. I've seen in Home Depot the Grounding Bars that can accept the gauge of wire that I have, but there aren't any mounting nipples to attach this extra ground bar. Can I drill a hole and use a grounding screw to attach the bar to the back of the box?

Bryant (aka Westinghouse aka Challenger) was bought by Cuttler Hammer and it is beign made as their BR series.

You can drill and tap panel for machine screws for a ground bus bar kit. You can't use sheet metal screws.

There is also an add on lug that might work for you. It attaches where 1 or 2 screws go in the bus.
