Heater hose help

I recently bought a 98' 2.5 L Ranger that had the heater core bypassed. I replaced the heater core and now trying to figure out or need a picture of how the heater hoses go back properly within the system. Pics,drawing or ms paint of each line going into the single plastic connector then into the top or bottom of the engine would be greatly appreciated!
I spent several hours searching the boards for a illustration of the hoses, I figured it's time to ask for help.

Close, but no bananna. Thank you for the quick reply, though. It may help Rickster, but I have the "4 port, plastic vac. valve". Thank you, again, though. I can't believe I didn't take a pic, when I by-passed it, with a 1/2" deep well Craftsman socket. LOL.
