Blower motor wiring issue

I am replacing the blower motor on my furnace and the wire colors don't match up. In fact the colors don't match the wiring diagram on the furnace either.
The motor removed is an Emerson K55HXEFY-2756
This is a 115 4speed 1075rpm motor and the wire colors (other than the cap and ground wires) are blue, red, orange, and white.

The new Emerson motor is a 3speed which is the replacement motor recommended. The wire colors are black, red, white and blue.

Does anyone what the correct color matching should be?

Thanks! Actually at second glance the old motor does not have a white, it is yellow.
So is the following correct:
Blue. Blue
Red. Red
Orange. Black
Yellow. White

Thanks much!!!!
