Main Panel and Sub Panel questions and the NEC

Sure, the fuse disconnect from the meter was replaced by circuit
breakers, but the sub panels themselves have no main, lugs only. So
the circuit goes from the main panel breaker to the sub lug only.
Just curious if the replacements subs need mains or main lugs are
fine as a replacement....
Main lugs are fine at the subpanel as long as the feeder is protected
at its source by a circuit breaker sized to its wire size. Perhaps
you could provide a small diagram of the service conductors, the
meter, the disconnect, the breakers, and the feeders?
