My experience has been that the rotator cables (2 big, 6 small wires) can be
Black&White or Black&Red (there may be other variations I haven't seen).

Absolute adherence to the color code is out...

Just follow the normal sequence of color code colors

Here's what I have in my shack:

Black           Black
White           Red

Brown           Brown
Red             Orange
Orange  Yellow
Yellow  Green
Green           Blue
Blue            White
