If the wires are run through conduit then it is a mystery to me as to
how the break occurred. Does your conduit, as far as you can see, look
like a steel spiral? If so, then you are dealing with a type of cable
called BX, and it is very unusual for a single wire break to appear out
of nowhere in the middle of the cable run. But if a break did occur,
then this is the cable to have, it contains sparks and makes things
fireproof. I assume you have pulled the cover off the breaker box. Is
this is a two-phase or single phase box? And when you jumpered the
"neutral" to the outlet just exactly where in the breaker box did you
make the connection?
