you can get harmonics with single pickups. it depends on how you play, and which pickup you use.

I know, but belive me, the fuzz can't get it right, I use the Boss MT-2, and works fine.

You just have to get your own sound, its really easy, play with the comp, gate and drive, use the stab just to get some squeal or weird sounds, its simple.

I really think than Matt changes the settings all the time, because the fuzz is different, I really dont think that the internal settings remains the same.

the other thing is that the fuzz factories are all slightly different due to variations in the componants.

but a good starting point for a muse sound (on my fuzz factory using o-clock positions) is gate:10 comp:7 drive:2.30 stab:2.
you then adjust the stab and drive slightly to get the right-ish feedback pitch (use a live plug in baby recording) then play the main riff. at the end of the main riff (live) there is a bit where matt holds a few notes and they decay into ff feedback(oscillation) if you play with the volume on your guitar you can get the exact decay time.
after all this, you will have the perfect Muse-Fuzz factory tone.
but only for the songs where crazy feedback is used ie plug in baby.
hehe

A Whammy doesn't have to be first in chain, I've put my whammy after distortion, it sounds much better.

One rule:

ALWAYS use the FF first.

the whammy appears to track better/faster if it's after fuzz (probably as it is working with nice almost-square waves rather than dodgy guitar curves).

Mmmm... I got a strat and a tele (both single coils I believe) and I got no problems of getting really loud harmonics with my FF... the trick is to discover where to play those harmonics... (I mean it's harmonics after all...) especially.. the hand that holds the pick.. I'm getting the really loud ones right above the bridge pickup (yes it works both for tele and strats for me...) whilst above the neck pickup they're almost unaudible.. (ok.. I'm assuming that you mostly use the bridge, bridge/middle pickups anyway..)

Good luck!

Yes, I use the middle pickup, because I hate the buzz of the neck pickup.
