Default Wiring an air compressor.

I have four wires coming from my panel. Red, Black, White, and uncovered. White comes from the neutral bus bar, Naked one at the ground bus bar. hot red and black from the breaker. Now, at the compressor I only have two screws that say line and one screw that looks it is ground, but I am not sure. if I put one hot wire in each scre line, and the ground wire to where I think it goes where am I suppose to conect the neutral?

I am attaching a picture of the compressor"s electrical panel

Cap the white off, the comp does not use a neutral wire.

Assuming that that is in fact a 220 volt compressor.
