Ignition Coil Connector wire colors

I have to replace the Ignition coil connector on my 01 focus as the wires are all bad.
The wire's have already been replaced ones and who ever did it cut it pretty fare up. Also they tried to fix the wires but they used electrical tape that is like hard plastic now and I cant get it off so I don't know what color goes where.

Here is a link to the picture of it:

I did find someone on this site who's middle wire broke and his was the Green/Blue one. The very left one is the Orange/Black one cause its still there and then it only leaves the Green/Black one that goes on the right? Is that the right order from left to right, Orange/Black-Green/Blue-Green/Black? The wires on the replacement are black so I cant go by them.

Thank you for your help!!!

Correct.

And for future reference wiring is ordered by the primary color first. So if the wire is primarily black but has a orange stripe it'd be Black/Orange.

Thank you very much, the orange wire was the easy one as it's the only one with a different color, the green one's took me a wile to figure out what color strips they had but black striped ones are outside and blue is inside and I can defiantly make out the black stripes on for the 2 outside ones. Ones again thank you

Otherwise think of it this way. The center is the largest because it's the power. The outsides are the switches form the ECU, which are grounds. If you cut the loom back a ways you'll see the cent wire is easily larger that the other 2.
