i am installing a ceiling light which i want to operate via a one way ceiling pull cord. I have connected a twin & earth to the light & a twin & earth to a lighting circuit junction box, so ending up with 2 black 2 red & 2 earth wires to be connected to to the pull cord which has one terminal marked common, one marked 1 way and an earth terminal block. I assume i connect both earth wires to the earth block, one red to the common terminat, the other red to the 1 way terminal & connect the two black via a seperate terminal block. Can anyine advise if this is correct or if not how should it be done?

You really shouldn't be installing old coloured cables in this day and age.
