87' RG550 Stock Pickups Question

I took the stock pickups out a few years ago and want to put back the neck humbucker. I can't tell which is which and there's no labels or markings. Would an multi-meter test tell me? Not sure what values to look for. Thanks.

Re: 87' RG550 Stock Pickups Question

neck humbucker has less resistance then bridge humbucker,
because string movement is greater at neck position,
so more coils and more resistance compensates weaker string movement at bridge position..
