I had to replace the ignition switch in my 1961 Ford Falcon. There are 4 wires that go inside the back of my old ignition switch that I don't know what poles to connect them to in the back side of my new switch. Any idea?

Just a wild guess BUT I think be in the same position as on your old switch. Think about it. That would match the order of operation that the old switch did.
