Bartolini "P" Pickup Question... Lefty?

    I'm putting together a LEFTY 5-string Warmoth PJ Bass with bartolini pups and I came across a problem...
    The "p" pup is marked with a "B" and "T" on the back of the split p (I'm assuming that "B" is for bass and "T" for treble). When installed, I can barely hear the g string because the blade on the treble side is too short. I then, reversed the split pup and put the "b" on the treble side and the "T" on the bass side and that fixed the problem. My string spacing is within their 66mm-72mm recommendations, so I'm not sure why I'm having this issue.
    I guess my question is: Is this ok to do? Are both parts of the pup wound the same way? Is one pup louder than the other?

    Does anyone have any experience with this pup?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
