1990 300E Ignition switch wiring diagram (HELP)

To make a long story short, in the process of removing the lock cylinder assembly fronm the steering colum (Key would not turn to position two), all the wires pulled free from the connector. I now have a new assembly but I dont know the pattern for putting the wires back into the switch.
There are eight wires;
Two (2) RED wires,
one Pink w/green stripe,
one Pink w/red stripe,
one Green
one Pink w/yellow stripe,
one dark violet and one light violet (both on same terminal:

Available terminals (in order clockwise) are 30, 15X, 30, 15, P30, 15R, 50. (Yes 30 appears twice, I assume that is where the two reds go)

I have searched the internet for two days trying to find this pattern with no luck. If someone has access to the wiring diagram and has a minute, please help with a description of the correct connections or maby send/attach a copy of the diagram to tigger55b@aol.com.

Thanks in advance

Have rechecked schematic for ignition power distribution pin pattern for chassis 124.030.
Findings are that the previous info posting is correct..
Of particular interest will be pin 50/violet wires [ 2]. These are the starter circuit feed and will only power when key is in the start position.
I would suspect either crossed/shorted wires , incorrect pin location, or bad ignition switch..
Try the above and if that does not result in remedy, I will try to get the schematic to you............
PS .. I also note that you have a gn wire to feed dash lamp circuit, whereas the CD states this wire to be gn/w.......????????
