Finally getting around to installing these, but I'm confused as if expect there to be a bare wire for grounding. There's a metal sleeve in there, but peeling it back I don't see a bare.
However, the black wire seems to be exposed to the sleeve?

What am I missing? Do I need to strip back the sleeve more? Did previous owner cut off the bare? Are these different?

(Don't mind the funkiness - I wax potted and covered them)

Welp, in an effort to remove the knob from the tone pot this happened...

The pot is thrashed and I installed a replacement. No idea how to get the knob off here tho...

I need more @garrett wisdom.
(Altho replacements are en route from AllParts)
 
I'd hold the shaft with pliers and see if I could wiggle the knob off. Cuss at it a little if it puts up a fight. A bit of "Get off of there you son of a..." really helps.

I'll give it another shot, but I'm pretty sure I will just have to wait for AllParts.
