Wait... what kind of Precision 5 do you have?
The Fender Precision 5 pickup has asymmetrical coils: one is larger than the other. The Nordstrand Precision 5 pickups that I've seen are symmetrical, made for Nordstrand, Sadowsky, Lull, and other Precision-style fivers. Obviously, the Fender pickup is not a direct replacement for the others, and vice versa.
