Western Diesel 4 position chip

I recently bought an '01 7.3 Excursion with a 4 pos. switch and chip. I'v researched all previous posts without sucess.
I know everyone bad-mouths Western Diesel, but right now this is what I have.
What are the 4 positions on switch, and what are they, clockwise from top?
I'm new here, and this is my first diesel, so any help will be appreciated. I just need to know what the switch positions are, and what they do.
