Yes.

Post pics of your current setup.

Post a description of what wiring you hope to achieve.

Post a drawing of what you THINK you have wired.

Post a pic (or link) to the wiring diagram you are following.

ok this is what i have up to this point its wired the same as the diagram in the link below

what i want is a 50s harness with 2 x push/pulls which splits the humbucker to make it a single coil on both humbuckers

many thanks

You need to run two ground wires from each push/pull. Did you? I can't tell from the picture. Also, what P/U's are you using?

Here is the diagram for what you're trying to do;

Or, the Seymour diagram for tone pot splitting if you want to switch things around?

That would ground both of those terminals and should be correct. With SD pups the red and white wires both connect to the series link which is the middle terminal and that looks correct also. Black is hot, green is ground. I don't know unless you have damaged the push/pulls. Is everything else working normally?
