Default Cox/Sanwa compatibility with Futaba systems

I recently obtained a Cox/Sanwa IC servo #80412 which looks to be in great shape but had the connector cut off. My questions are as follows: 1. Is it compatible with Futaba systems? 2. If it is compatible, it has three black wires exiting the servo. How do I determine in which way to connect the red/white/black wires of the Futaba system? Thanks, if anyone can help!

Take a closer look at the wires, one of the two outer wires should be red, or at least have a red stripe on the wire. On old Airtronics/Sanwa, the outer red wire is positive, the center black wire is negative and the outer black wire is signal. If you can identify the positive wire, it is easy to splice on a new servo lead.
Good luck,
Pete
