While replacing the extension pole on this older Hunter ceiling fan, the crumbling zip tie holding the winding connections broke loose and then the connections ripped free.
Since i didn't expect this to happen I didn't have a photo to compare. I've found an online drawing that is very similar, just not 1oo% sure which is the start-up winding and the running winding. I think the wires go: Red-4, Yellow-3, Gray-2, Pink-1.
Could someone let me know if this is correct.

That's an "airmax" motor. I have a 172x15mm sitting here that's the previous generation without all the aluminum fins. If yours is a 172x15 also you can use that motor. Cool that you're trying to fix it, but there's a point of diminishing returns. That said, if you're damned and determined to fix it. Most... likely the outside winding is going to be the running winding but I can't say for sure. What Ohm readings do you get on the two coils? I could compare ohms to what you get on the colors and that might point you in the right direction. Worst thing that happens is it goes up in smoke, right?
