Mrbert, you have to ground the strings too.

I like to use some metal tape to stick down in the cavity and then punch holes through for the controls, that effectively grounds them all together. You can use aluminum you don't need to use copper tape.

Nope mrbert, the black is the ground wire, you just make a jumper wire to go to the other side of the switch from the red. You will be using only one post on each side, just ignore the unused terminals. It is a separate wire you make from the centers to the vol pot. The blacks go like I said all to the back of the vol pot.

Unhappy hot dang the buzz wont budge

well I wired up as per your instructions...

one red wire to each switch which is jumpered to the 3rd position

a wire running from one switch to the other to the volume pot (outermost tab) via the central tabs on the switches

blacks to the back of the volume pot along with a string ground from the back of the vol pot to the tremelo spring claw

but....

hhuuuuuuuuuuumm!!!

Figure I might take it along to a friendly old style music shop near me just to show the guy the wiring and see if he can identify my glaring innacuracies!! Bugger!

The wiring diagram should be on VintageKramer or check the Duncan site.
Most any 5-way will work but I would suggest paying a bit more and getting a good metal one instead of the cheap plastic ones. Most local shops have the switch so you shouldn't need to order one unless you are getting a bunch of shit. They are pretty easy to figure out with a multimeter too.
