Have you got the bare wire to ground too? The red wire is the coil tap wire. Running it to ground taps the coil. Try running the bare wire to ground and leaving the red wire unhooked and taped off.

According to the 2000 270 wiring diagram (I used 2000 since my boy has a 2000 270DX), the white and ground wires are the humbucker wires and the red is the coil tap wire. This cuts the path to ground to use only one coil. You can look at it like this:
