Default 93 Ranger distributor wires pulled out!

Hi,
While doing a clutch change, I managed to pull all the wires out of the plug that connects to the side of the distributor. I pushed them back into the plug(the C126 plug) but I have no spark at the coil, hence it won't start. Since I don't know what order the wires were in in the plug, I am assuming that the wires are not in the correct order. After trying to get it running, I have replaced the coil and sparkplug wires, checked for 12v at the distributor red wire and at the coil, checked the cap and rotor, traced all the wiring, and checked all the fuses.
Could someone please check their 3.0L and see how the wires are pushed into the plug. This picture is how I put them in, the plug is disconnected for the picture.

There are no wires to check on the inside of the distributor.
Thanks!

I have a different distributor then you but am trying to help you out. Which one is the C126 plug? I do not see any labels on mine. The closest cable I saw was orange/brown, beige/green, beige/white, then red/green. If this isnt what your looking for, let me know and I will keep looking....

The drawing came from the local Ford dealers parts department and illustrates the ignition wiring for the 1993 3.0L engine in the Ranger. The C126 plug connects directly to the distributor and has the following color coded wires going into the plug- a #57 black one, a #16 red with gray stripe, a #395 gray with orange stripe, and a #259 orange with red stripe, and again this is only a 4 pin plug.
Because I accidentally pulled all the wires out, I cannot tell if I put them back in the right place and after spending an hour with the electrical tech at the dealership, we couldn't find any Ford drawings of the C126 plug, but we did find drawings of almost every other plug under the hood of my Ranger. He thought that I might have put them in the right way but that combination still has no spark being generated at the coil.




So, anyway, I was hoping someone could check their 93 or 94 3.0L(you have to get all the way back to the firewall to see this plug)and tell me what the correct order is. If the order is correct, then there has to be something else messed up but I don't know what at this point.
Thanks, I appreciate the help.
