3PDT Wiring

Hi all,
I am having some problems with a new 3DPT switch I have wired up.

I have a bit of NEWBY question....

Is there a correct way (top or bottom) the switch should be wired? I'm pretty confident I've followed my instructions correctly. ... rdrive.pdf

Looking at CODA effects here: ... iring.html

It suggested there is a numbered sequence to the lugs and was wondering if I have wired it upside down?
I can't see any markings to show where the 'No. 1' lug is located or a top side etc..

there isn't any upside down, just be sure that the lugs are orizontal and not vertical.
Numbers are there just to simplify the wiring instructions (red wire to lug4 etc...)

Be careful while soldering on the switch, because it can't stand the heat for long: no more than a couple of secs per lug. If necessary, wait for the lug to cool down and then reflow the soldering.
Have a nice time,
