Exclamation help with honeywell zone valve wiring!!!!

I am trying to replace honeywell zone valve head for V8043E. Unfortunately, although I purchased the same model twounits do not look 100% identical.

There are two yellow wires (one connected to orange one) and I have no problem with these as they do look identical.

On the other hand, there are two red wires. One old unit they came from front/back from the same spot of head. In the new unit, wires come a quarter inch apart (left right).

So I can put yellow wires exactly where they were in the old unit but not red ones. Does it matter if I mix up one red wire with another one?

How can I figure out which red one goes to which? As far as I can tell, there's no mark/letters where these red wires are coming from (in the zone valve head)

Thank you!

The new valve wires exactly the same way as the old valve.

There is no issue with the 'polarity' of either the red or the yellow...
