Sounds like new wires have been joined to the originals, so best look at the stator and see which goes to which. Your only other clue would be where the wires went to your lighting switch, if you have a record.
When you ascertain, from memory its G/Y & G/W joined, leaving G/B alone.

It would normally be 47162 and the lead colours would be grn/yel, grn/blk, grn/wht. To convert to 12v you would join grn/yel with grn/blk.

I can't find any info on that stator or with those lead colours. Do you have a multimeter David, can you measure the resistance between the leads? Disconnected. It will probably be less than 1 ohm.
