Yes, the Installation and Maintenance Manual on bitsavers 
(02116-9153_2116B_Vol2_Oct70.pdf) contains several errors.
Interesting enough, my printed copy of this manual from 1968 (that is 
completely different from the 1970 one; it only has parts lists and 
schematics, the chapters for installation and maintenance are simply not 
there) is right: 2140-0035  6.3V 0.04A

In the meantime I've ordered a bunch of JKL 345 from Mouser (60 Ecent/piece)
