Problem with emg 85 installation

Hello people,

I own a RGT3020 and I'm having trouble with the EMG 85 wich I want to install in bridge position.

The neck pickup and switch are out of use, i didn't used them anyway.

The problem is that I installed it all, but it isn't working.

Does anybody know wich wire i need to install on wich pole of the jack.
It has three; a large one(ground), medium sized one(signal?), and a smaller one(don't know).

I have three wires; one from the battery(black), one from the volume pot(white), and one from the tone pot(black.

Does anybody know on wich pole of the jack I must solder the wires?

This is the scheme I'm using:

I believe the shortest lead is for the hot output, the middle length lead is for the battery (black) and the longest lead is for the ground.
