Hi Bill.

I don't have a Hy-Gain rotor on the ground and opened up right now, Bill, but it would appear that there are a couple of terminals that could be used as the common tie point for two or more leads. No lead colors are denoted on the schematic, but they're usually so washed out when you're fingering the actual leads that it really doesn't matter. There are few of them and they're easily traced from the schematic.

See here:

I've done overhauls on tailtwister rotors before, but it's been a  while.
I have an older unit which of course has the old terminal strip. The
strip was badly corroded and pretty well decomposed.  I was unable to  identify
any of the wires correct locations with the exception of nr 8.  I  have the
manual and all of the ohm readings in it so I can sort of by trial and
error figure out which is which.
However, here is my problem. There are nine wires coming down to the
strip and of course only eight terminals.  Which two of the wires are  doubled
up to one terminal and which one is it?  Help!
