Normal wiring for lights is:  Battery + >> Fuse >>  Switch >>> Lights (in parallel)  >> Ground.

Yes, there is a terminal 'L' for lights, on the voltage regulator.

Go to simplicitymfg.com, Manuals(bottom of page) and put in 990318. Will pull up the light kit. shown with switches on lights. Hope that helps a little.

He is correct....a '64 would have had the early light kit, with switches built into the lights themselves.  Later light kits offered the switch in the dash, and it was a toggle.  I don't recall seeing any oem light kit with a pull switch from this era.  It's likely many early machines were fitted with later light kits, and the dash switch.
