I believe the issue was if the diodes in the alt are bad it can keep the choke light on. the choke heater relay uses the increased voltage through the Gen Lt., from the ALt once engine is up to speed to cause the relay to drop out turning off the choke.

Choke light can come on for several reasons...usually a bad fuse. Faulty alternator, or choke heater can do it, too. Or even a faulty choke coil. Start with the basics....check fuses, then make sure the choke is plugged in, and go from there.
