Bonehead mistake. Need help with Rectifier

I just replaced the rectifier about 2 weeks ago. Last night I was checking the wiring on it (I suck at electrical stuff so was just checking to make sure all is well). I saw one of the wires were loose. So I pulled all the wires from the plastic connector and I was going to clean the dyelectrical grease off and replace the quick connects. Well, as soon as I unplugged the wires from the connector it hit me. I did not note the order the wires are plugged into the connector. To make things worse, there are THREE yellow wires. Yes, i'm a moron for not marking the wires.

Is there any easy way I can find out the order the wires go in? I'm looking through the manual and Clymers right now.

The three yellow wires order shouldn't matter.
Not sure if this pic shows the proper order or not. maybe someone else knows for sure

Looking at this photo, it looks like the three yellows go on the bottom and the other three on top from left looks like white, brown, then brown/yellow?

I found in the manual the 3 yellow wires (A1, A2, and A3) are the alternator terminal. The picture and diagram helps with the other 3 wires. Before I mess up something, can anyone else confirm that order of the 3 yellow wires is not important?

the three wires get connected to the rectifire on the same bar the order is unimportant ... if it were important they would a. be three diffrent colors andb. it would mattterr what order u connected the stator to the harness at the bullet connectors

That's a really helpful observation, Seebeeare! I assume that the same - at least about the wire color - holds true for other situations? That if the positioning of the wires doesn't matter, then the color is a constant?

Of course beware of the PO who does a bunch of re-wiring and buys a 200' roll of red wire...only. It pays to have the wiring diagram in color!
