Ingnition Wiring

I have a 58 CJ5. I had the ignition switch wired correctly, until my brother fiddled with it. Now I can't remeber what color goes where. The switch is the typical 4 prong. Labels are ACC, IGN, BATT, and the middle is not labeled on the new switch, I'm assuming it's ST for starter, but I'm not sure. I can get the Batt and Acc right for sure, but the other 2 I'm confused, maybe the switch is bad, but when i turn to Acc in either direction, it tries to crank. It should only crank when I turn the key all the way to the right. My question is which wires do I have crossed up? I've tried several different set ups, none seem to work properly. If any one has the diagram and color schemes, that would be much appreciated

Thank you and Happy Holidays
