Default New Member, and Instrument Panel Plugs I Can't Locate Their Other Halfs

Hi, group. Had my 95 Ranger since new, bought it at the Ford dealer in Lafayette, Louisiana. 2.3L/5-speed, standard cab, XLT trim, Camen green exterior. Named him "The Green Flash," after the atmospheric phenomena whereby, if conditions are just right, one can see a brilliant flash of emerald green on a flat horizon, just after the sun sets- also a goof on the fact the he was only a bit faster than molasses. Drove the livin' stink out of the truck, putting about 300,000 miles on the original drive train. He developed a slight water-pump leak, which got ahead of me one morning, causing the engine to overheat and (I would find out later) the #2 piston to come apart and wedge between the crank journal and block.

Found a donor 96 B4000 truck, 4.0L v6/AOD, and removed EVERYTHING I though I'd ever need, including underhood wiring, rear axle, power windows/doorlocks/mirrors, etc. Started the swap, but got distracted and am only now getting back to it, 3 years later!

I removed the instrument cluster, to install the "new" one that includes the tach, and just put it back- but I have four plugs that I can not find their "partners." Took pics, attached, I will also to describe them as best I can.

#1. Two connectors. Two wires: one green, one white. All black connector, squared corners.

#2. One connector, white with black tracer wire. Did not take a pic of this one, but it's pretty straight-forward.

#3 Three connectors, black exterior, red interior. Wires: Black, green, white (I think- may have tracers on any of them.)

#4. Six connector, black. Wires: blue/white tracer, red/white tracer (I think,) white, pink, red. Colors are approximate, I took pics but color may be shifted, can't easily view the connectors right now.

Does anyone know what these attach to? I am concerned that the engine may not start if one or more of them is not connected. Have some underhood work to do, so have not tried to start the engine, yet.

Thanks.
