Does 50s wiring work with a no load tone pot?

My LP is wired with 50´s wiring however I find that the neck pickup gets muddy when I turn down the volume.
I have checked everything and the only explanation could be that I modified the tone pot to be a no load pot, so it´s out of the system when it´s on 10.

The bridge pickup has a regular tone pot and 50´s wiring works perfectly keeping the pickup clear as I turn down the volume.
Why isn't 50's wiring working in my neck pickup? Thanks

It doesn't sound like it would cause a problem because the 50s wiring would come into effect when you turn your tone down, which then engages the pot as well. Are you sure your wiring is correct?
