Replacing Controller

I have a very old Rainbird CRC-6A controller that I am replacing with a Hunter SRC-600i. I am a little confused with my wiring and was wondering if anyone knew where I can find information on wiring up a Rainbird CRC-6A. I figured if I can get more information on how the original controller is wired it may shed some light on what some of the wires lead to. The original setup is connected with a rain sensor and also a relay that fires up my pump. The new setup will also include a rain sensor (The wireless Hunter rain/freeze clik) and will be connected to a relay switch for turning on the pump. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I had checked that out previously. It looks like the manual only has information on programming the timer and I didn't see anything in there about wiring.

If you can't identify which of your wires are which, it might be time to call in a professional.

I was able to trace the wires to find out where they went so everything is now working great. I was just doing some research to try and make the job a little easier. Thanks for trying to help.
