You may not know this but you can actually make a colour print from a black and white negative and as a table of suggested starting points for monochrome to colour - of course printing on colour paper - through the RA4 process, is as follows: (this will be an overall colour of the print)

green yellow 120 magenta 120 cyan 200 magenta 100 blue 200 magenta 80 violet 120 -200 yellow 60 magenta magenta 120 - 200 yellow 0 magenta red 40 yellow 0 magenta orange 0 yellow 0 magenta yellow 0 yellow 80 magenta.

these can vary of course and require some experimentation. If by any change when you go to focus your enlarger you open up to white light - that means you knock out the filtration, you will find that all your prints will come out a reddy colour. If this happens check the white light and that may well be your cause.
