You mean the diagram you provided minus the tone control?

Delete the tone pot and tone cap, and transfer any remaining connection that was previously assigned to the tone pot to the new push-pull volume.

Exactly.

I think this is right...wiring2.thumb.jpg.29ea10e9f0edbfa94fbf2dbc2b538a1b.jpg

Looking at the battery hookup, since the pickup is pulling power from the battery, I am correct in thinking the 'kill switch' should be between the red wire i.e. where the insulation is suggested. In effect, turning the pickup on and off?

You're missing the ground from the pickup lead to the back of the volume pot, but otherwise it looks correct.

No. The kill switch should go across the middle and bottom lugs of the volume pot.

I actually had it there, but it didn't look "right". Back it goes.

And kill switch...

Then I'm good to go.
