8 track wires

Wondering if anybody has a wiring color code for the delco 8 track ,1970
This has an 8 pin pigtail and I'm trying to test it.
I have it on the bench and got motor to run so yellow is hot.

Now looking for speaker wire combos.
I think these units can run independent of radio?,have their own amp?

Nothing in the manual.

Any help and input greatly appreciated

I really can't speak for the factory 8 tracks but in the late '60's early '70's my brother and I used a number of aftermarket 8 tracks in our cars. They all operated independently of the radio and frequently we would run them on their own speaker system independent of the radio's speaker. I would assume the factory ones would be similar as they were probably made to factory specs by one of the aftermarket guys back then, like Audiovox or Craig. Hope this is of some help.
