Option 004 TXCO 10MHz ovenized reference

I'm looking for the differences in the connector with the TXCO ovenized 10MHz reference between the 859xA series versus the 859xE series RF Spectrum Analyzers.  I recall the A series had a flat 5 pin connector and the E series the connector was two rows of three across.  Does anyone have a comparasion between the two types of connectors.  The reasoning is that I have the 10MHz reference with an E series connector and will be removing the connector to replace it with an A series to install into a 8591A.  The ovenized 10MHz reference came with the E series connector.  I've done this in the past, I don't have my notes nor immediate access to that instrument to open it up and follow what I did some years past.  I wanted to see if posting the question here would yield results.  I'm also recalling red, blue, and green wires were on the connector that went between the ovenized reference and the spec-an, and there was a yellow jumper that signalled the motherboard that opt 004 existed.
