FWIW, the only 7V choke housings have a single 'bullet' style connector.
And use the white/black stator wire.

Holley choke caps with two spade terminals take 12V and are polarity sensitive.
The other spade goes to ground. (usually one of the carburetor studs)

Gary, it's not my manifold - just a photo I found that showed the air tubes; although mine has the same hot-air (plus electric) set up. The F150/302 parts truck I have is also the same.
