Have u wired a Motherbucker b4?

I have searched this internet top tp bottom & forums out the wazoo & still the only info i can find is 2 wiring diagrams for the KA motherbucker,bit the same diagram. Yet someone on another message board says that digram is wrong, that they show pup1 in place where pup2 should be & vice versa ....dont know if this is true .but I know i wired exact to the diagram & it wont work. And info on hooking these up are next to impossible to find.



Im basically hooking up 2 humbuckers that will be running in series all 4 coild at the same time.
I have 2 red wires,2 bare wires,2 black wires,2 green wires & 2 white wires.
Some info says KA uses BLACK as hot & tape off red/white wtf? strange. Anybody have any pointers on this? btw,I now have a multimeter, If I touch the red wire with the pos on the meter, what would I put the black meter needle on to get a reading? and am I trying to achieve the highest reading?

Did this really need a second thread?

guess my desperation for the right wiring color codes is showing. Fishing for a solution.

Heres the reason for the confusion.
THIS link shows red & Green together http://www.freewebs.com/guitarbuild/wiring.jpg

while the instructions on the KA website (which is also included with the pickup) shows red & white together.
Was hoping someone has ran into this issue before & actually could tell me the correct wiring. Its BASICALLY like running 2 different humbuckers in series as one pickup,kinda.
