Ignition switch harness...

Just pulled my old non- tilt steering column out at the intermediate shaft and replaced it with a rebuilt tilt version. Everything bolts up great but the ignition switch is different and the harness doesn't plug in as it should. Can anyone give provide a wire by wire explanation of what goes where or perhaps give me a lead on a harness plug that would allow me to fix the issue?

Anyone know what the green and light brown wires are for on the bottom of the pic? Its from an '86 with non-tilt. My other column which is an older tilt doesn't have these 2 wires. Thanks

The ignition switch is 180* rotated but the plugs should still fit after rotating the plugs to match the switch.

Might have to make some new bends in the harness for it to fit.

The last 2 wires are for the key buzzer. if you had one.

Muchas gracias

Thanks John

I put a multimeter on both switches and was getting the same response so I plugged it in and everything fired up. After a few hiccups getting my horn to stop grounding out and stay on all the time, we're up running through Austin and sweating through our t-shirts at about 105 degrees. Thanks for the response.
