If the 6 wire is a center tap version then wire the four outside wires.

If you don't have an ohm meter LEDs can tell you a lot.

BTW , I could not find if the ramps 1.4 can handle your stepper 1.3amps !!

so i think i should use an " A4988" stepper driver..... because as they say it can handle a current upto 2A , And the pinout is as given...... which wire nodes should i use ????

Disregard the YEL & WHT ...Use the BLK, GRN and the RED, BLU.

And yes the A4988 does handle 2Amps.
