If the biscuit is snug/tight on the cone, then the bridge can only really go one way, so the cone should go back in it’s original position. That’s of course unless you are replacing the biscuit too (eg. If you were fitting a Highlander pickup .............)
mark the biscuit/cone junction with a pen of some sort while you’re at it. Pete The biscuit screw is usually too tight for the biscuit to move relative to the cone, but it can sometimes twist out of place, cones are delicate things , take care!

This was something that was started back in the days when only real vintage National guitars existed, as a way of not destroying a vintage instrument. Correct me if I am wrong, but the first person to do this was Steve Phillips back in the 80s. All MM guitars that have pickups installed have the jack socket on the side, which in my opinion is preferable.
f this was a vintage instrument of mine then no way but I am vintage myself and its what i want to suit me and it does and some may cringe and some may weep but for me Drill and be dammed ! I have also done the same to my Gretsch but volume only with a MM pickup No doubt I will be cursed when i am long gone and I shall not care a fig ,The jack plug is on the side with a small maple 3mm thick block glued inside for stability ...Please fellas no death threats.
Reso is out of surgery and recuperating awaiting a fresh set of strings .... :-)
I hope you don't use Newtone nickels like I do, or it might be waiting a long time
I know that Neil is doing his best to keep going through the lockdown, but working alone does slow things down. I am in the same position with MM Guitars, still in business but running way slower than I usually do.
