Previous owner cut 4wd shift motor wire


I have been searching around for a solution to this, but have not quite managed to track it down yet. I am the new owner of a 1996 3.0 XLT 4x4, and the previous owner took the 4wd shift motor off of the truck, and cut the brown wire. I have a replacement motor (original was lost), but I need to know what kind of connector to use on the brown wire to be able to put it in the plug. Or perhaps there is another way to splice/connect/deal with that brown wire?

On a somewhat similar note, does anyone know what size/length the bolts need to be to mount the motor on the transfer case? Seems to be 3 longer and 1 short, but the short also has a different thread pattern. Thanks in advance!
