Wiring for an Autohelm ST6000 rudder sensor

Hi,
I had to pull out my tanks because they were badly rusted. In the process of doing that the cable going into the Autohelm ST6000 rudder sensor was pulled out. I took it apart and because of the way it pulled apart I know where to land the green wire. I don't know where to land the red and blue wires from that cable. I suppose I could just guess and hope it doesn't cause a problem if I guess wrong but I was hoping someone might know which of the two posts is the correct landing spot for each. If you know please tell me by starting at the green wire and going clockwise which is next.
Thanks for reading this as I know it is a long shot that anyone would know.
Steve

Thanks, Capt Dan,
I looked pretty closely but didn't see any numbers until I got a flashlight on it at different angles. Even then they were hard to see because of the flux that was around it. I had guessed wrong and would have connected it that way if you hadn't bailed me out with your information.
Thanks again Steve
