Default Speed Gems -- Colors???

Can anyone remeber what colors represent the different winds (and names) of the "Trinity Speed Gems 2" motors. I have a yellow, pink, orange, and a chrome can motors, and haven't run them in a couple years. Can't remember whats what. My short term memory is as bad as my long term memory. The "70's" were tough on me! Any help would be appriciated. Thanks

Trinity revamped this line so the new motors dont use the same colors or turns or names. But i know your talking about the can colored ones that are older:

Topaz 11 triple
Ruby 16 triple
Sapphire 17 Turn Single (blue)
Diamond 12 double
Onyx 14 double (white)
Amethyst 17 double
Jade 15 quad
Quartz 19 double
Opal 10 triple
Platinum 13 triple

Your guess is as good as mine as to what colors are what

Yep, these are the ones I'm talking about. But, the colors are what have me stumped. I've pulled each one apart for rebiuld, and there are no designations on the arms. Thanks

From what I do remember, there was the "original" Speed Gems series.
Then came the "Speed Gems 2" (these are the colors vs. winds I'm lookin' for).
And the most recent series are called "Speed Gems Pro", They have different lables, but the cans are the same color.
I think the "Pink" and the "Yellow" were "special" in that they were wound on D3.5 arms. But I still can't recall the winds???
