I didn't ever say to do that.... I guess the next thing I should say is get an ammeter, variac and a fuse since the hookup you described mayl draw a lot of current and cause some sort of failure.
You haven't stated what voltage you are trying to wire it for so I will say it again.
first confirm continuity of the wires and that 1&3 are a pair and 2&4 the other.
For 115V operation connect 1&2 for hot and connect 3&4 for neutral
for 230V operation 1 is 0V 3 gets connected to 2 and insulated and 4 is 230V/
