93 Ranger distributor wires pulled out!

I accidentally pulled all of the wires out of the C126 plug that goes into the side of my 3.0L distributor. I pushed them back into the plug but have no spark at the coil and the engine won't start. The wires are color coded black, red with light gray stripe, gray with orange stripe, and orange with red stripe. This four pin plug goes into the Distributor Ignition Module of the distributor and was only available on the 93 or 94 3.0L engine in a Ranger or Explorer. I cannot find a factory diagram of this plug to see if I have the wires in the correct position. I have replaced the coil and the spark plug wires but still nothing. There is 12v at the coil and at the red/light gray wire going to the distributor but I don't know if the wires are in the correct position. I will probably change the DIM, which requires the disassembly of the distributor but I really want to make sure that the wires are correct first.
Can some one check their 3.0L and see what the correct order is? Or can someone come up with a diagram of the C126 plug?
