hopefully someone can help me

i'm on universaljems.com looking for new electronics. i have a 570 that i'm completely redoing. I want to put in a Steve's special, blue velvet and air norton. i want the hum buckers to be tapped using a push pull tone knob. i know it's a lot to ask, but can someone help me figure out what all i need to buy to complete this project? I'm keeping it to just the one tone, one volume and 5 way switch. I don't know what in guitar needs to be replaced, aside from push pull tone knob. but i don't know the differnce between 250k and 500k.. man i need help.

The original pots are 500k, you only need to buy a 500k push/pull pot to replace the tone knob. Everything else stays.

The main difference between the 2 is that a 250K pot will bleed off more top end than a 500K pot. 500K is a standard for your type of setup, so as Frank says, you just need a new push pull 500K pot.
