Default 1977 ford tail light wiring

i just put a new bed on my truck and im trying to get the lights to work but im having one hell of a time. the old harness that was there is junk and the wires broke all apart when i took it out, so i have no idea whats going on here. im i have a 4 prong output where the old harness would have plugged into. ill attach an image of what it kinda looks like on here. i numbered them just for my own reference, anyways, i tried to run the wiring the way it seemed like it would work by splitting the brake lines, running a blinker to each side but thats not working. it seems like they need to be ran in paralell. if anyone could draw me up a simple schematic so i can figure this out, or if you have any info here that would really be great. ive been messing with this for 3 days now and cant figure it out. thanks in advance.
