bugeye ignition switch

So, my car was stripped of its wiring harness and most of its electrical parts decades ago. I bought a new ignition switch from Moss. I see in the wiring diagram the terminals are labeled, but I don't see anything on the ignition switch. I've wired it according to the diagram, but all four wires might need to be shifted 90, 180 or 270 degrees. Does any one have reference or knowledge of the wiring for the ignition switch?

I believe the white wires should be on the middle connector instead of the blue, so maybe rotate them all one connector counter clockwise? Also having a hard time finding a wired picture of the switch, and can't get a good picture of mine. Hopefully someone else respond to your question as well.

I have an old Lucas switch in my hand. It looks very much the same as your new one. Looking at your picture, the 12:00 position is marked "A" and should be the brown/blue wire. The 3:00 position is marked "H" and should be the blue wire. The 6:00 position is marked "IG" and should be the white wire(s). The 9:00 position is marked "S&T" and should be the red wire.

Check out the attached wiring diagram.
