If you used a like-for-like pot and the existing capacitor there should be no difference. Did you take a photo of the wiring before you changed it over?

And are you sure the neck pup was actually split previously?

+1. A coil split is one of the simplest switches; so the only thing that could go wrong is that the neck series connection isn’t being put to ground. Make sure each pickup’s series connection is soldered to its own middle switch lug, and that the ground wire is passing through both top contacts. If you end up with a phase and/or hum-cancelling issue, then you’ll need to switch which wires go to the middle switch lug.

Do you have an ohm meter?
