I am a little puzzled at what electrical schematic is correct for my car. The wiring, when purchased, was an original harness and somewhat butchered. An electrical schematic was included with the car, and according to the old type34.org website is "Diagram #3 Wiring Diagram for Sept. 1961 (chassis 0 000 001) to April 1964 (chassis 0 425 852) Single Carb Models", however my car was built in August of 1963, a 64' model and is dual carb. The schematic only has 1 choke, and is clearly labeled on web sites as being for the single carb only (although the year it is covered under and the serial number of my car falls in the correct spec.).
So I am a little confused. I need to either use a schematic for single carb car which falls under the correct year and vin, or a dual carb schematic which is for the incorrect year and outside the range of vin #'s.
Here is the schematic supplied with the car, and what I have been using. Hope it is right....

Thanks for the reply jack. I was not so much worried about the wiring of the choke, as it is simple, as I was concerned about the differences in how the dash segment of the wiring was done from 63' to 64'. Specifically the differences in the headlight relay and other slight changes to the in-dash components seemed subtle to significant from 1963 to 1964. I was unsure why the changes were made (reliability and or fire issues?) and did not want to wire my car the older 63' way to find out it should be done "the more reliable" 64' way.
As you stated, I think what I am doing now (63') should work, but I do not want any surprises.
Having owned a '63 pushbutton car and a '64 push pull switch car, the main difference is the pushbuttons and how they wire into the relays. SO if you have those in order you will be fine. Hope you plan on making it to the Classic in June. Also you should get in touch with Bob Walton who owns a very nice '64 Type 34 and 3 early notchbacks he live in Temple City.
