copying 970xl wiring to 1077xl

OK I've done my head in searching and reading and trying but I'm going to have to ask for help. I have a totally stock 970xl. I was sure online somewhere there was a brochure or something saying how the pickups were wired, but I cannot find it, being a rare-ish guitar and all.

It has a rectangle block thing for the 5 way switch. I like the pickup configuration and would like to copy the layout to put into my 1077xl which has been modified by the previous owner.

The 1077xl has SD blackouts in the neck and bridge and the standard dimarzio single coil in the middle. It also has a semi circle 5 way switch, so I can't just copy the wiring.

Currently on the 1077xl, position 1 and 2 sound identical, position 3 is the single coil and then position 4 and 5 sound identical.
On the 970xl I like being able to use position 2 and 4 for the lower output, but the 1077 is wired so that 2 and 4 are the same as 1 and 5.... In other words it may as well be a 3 way switch in there

Is it possible to do what I want to the 1077 with blackouts?

Thank you!
