My plug is as follows:

Top of ballast

Orange: Blue: Blue: Red: Yellow: Brown: Brown: Purple
Black: Green: White: (Empty): Orange: Yellow: Red: Purple

If your black, green and white match location with mine you could try running your wires as mine from the balast plug and not worry about the color..as long as the power colors match.

Might be worth a try
