220s hotwire question

I'm working on my '57 220s ponton, and I'm having trouble with the ignition tumbler. I had keys made for it off of the original build sheet from Mercedes, but the ignition key has troubles. New key, old tumbler I think. Anyways, I just want to see if the engine runs and wondered which of the four wires I needed to cross to hotwire it? There's a blue, black, red and a red with a white stripe ( I think). Any help would be appreciated. Any Idea how to get the fuel door open with out the keys too? Somebody took a screw driver to it and the key doesn't work in it either. Thanks.
