OHC wiring question

I got a OHC at the local JY today and Im goin by John's wiring instructions but I have 2 different colored wires that are different than his instructions.

1st...Grey with yellow stripe

2ND..Red with black stripe

His diagram list....

2A. Yellow/Gray (YE/GY) - console electronics power
2B. Blue/Red (BL/RD) - console display dimmer input

It has to be the above but since mine are different colors I want to be sure.

From what Bob posted before

#1 GRAY/YELLOW to 12V hot in RUN or RUN/ACC (Explorer Color Code)
#2 BLACK (again, spliced with black wire from MODE switch) to chassis ground (Explorer CC)
#3 GRAY/BLACK tapped to VSS wire on GEM, some models without GEM can tap into the GY/BK at the PCM (same CC Ranger & Explorer)
#4 LIGHT BLUE/RED or RED/BLACK tapped to instrumentation illumination (most Rangers use LIGHT BLUE/RED)
#5 DARK BLUE/YELLOW to outside temp sensor (Explorer CC, does not wire directly to Ranger harness)
#6 DARK BLUE/WHITE to outside temp sensor (Explorer CC, does not wire directly to Ranger harness)

Post the Pin positions of each color, I have two OHC's to reference off of.

Edit- Sorry for reposting Griggs' info, I was stupid and didn't read through your first post.
