Tele Wiring...bad pot?

Hey All,
Wiring a Tele, nothing fancy...3-way....033...that's it. Sounds great...but...volume control does nothing. It's just sitting there. Give it a spin and...zip...full volume only.
Here's the anomaly that may be diagnostic (to a smart person...not to me)...the jack hot is supposed to go to the middle (2) lug of the volume pot. Well...there's no sound unless I move it down to the bottom (3) lug. That is not where the diagram indicates. I just moved it around until I got notes to sound.
Everything else...beautiful. I've traced every wire (using the standard Seymour diagram)...can't figure it out. I would just swap another pot in, but...fun day...my Hakko ate a peach, so....until the replacement arrives...no soldering.
So...any thoughts?
Thanks all...I'm advance!

The cap is running from the V case...to lug 1 (top)...to lug 2 (middle) of the tone pot.
And...thanks for responding!
