Real quick. L6 A20: Wires are black white & green. Receptacle has X, Y and G connectors. I figure Green is G (ground). But what is X and Y?

Doesn’t matter. Black and white are both hot legs, 220V potential to each other, and each leg is 110V potential to ground. Get the ground wire right and the others can go either way.

You are wiring 220 volt, correct?

Correct X and Y can be two poles of a 220 circuit. Green is ground. You should be using 220V cord fittings to prevent using the cord on 120V equipment.
