You can tape off the wire for the first coil and just use two connections for a traditional humbucker, or use a switch to pick between one or the other for a coil tapped sound."
Does your axe have a coil tap switch or tap knob? If not than do what Steve said and tape off the single coil.

Consider that the pickup is a single coil, and halfway through the winding they tap into the wire for a half strength signal. You would have a choice (some sort of switch) for each pickup to either be half strength or full strength.
The other option could be as described above... the end of each coil wire, and a ground wire attached to the metal housing for grounding purposes.

on the bridge p/u the green wire (thin) goes to the same gnd as the other p/u, the red wire goes to top terminal of the bridge switch (with the black wire of the neck p/u) the black wire goes to the same spot as the green wire (gnd on the pot)
Hope this helps, need more help, let me know
I'm currently rebuilding the same guitar, I found that it is very rare, so don't trash it. I don't know if it is worth anything, but they are impossible to find. I really like the shape of the body so I'm making a template so that I can duplicate the body shape. I'm building a new body for it out of ash to try to improve the sustain, I want to keep the rest original so that I can guage the improvement. Then I will probly restore the original body and use the ash body to build a standard scale guitar with a homemade Strat-copy neck and grizzly electronics.
the Heit Deluxe was only built from 1967-1970, I think that mine is a 1968, but I am not sure.
Good luck, Ed
