Those wires are for the fuel shut-off solenoid.It shuts off fuel flow to the main jet,when the key is turned off. One wire will go to the wire that is hot,both on cranking,and running positions.
The solenoid receives a charge when you turn the ignition which activates the small electromagnet inside and completes the circuit, turning on the carburetor. This allows you to start the vehicle because the carburetor is ready to start mixing the fuel and air combination that makes the engine turn on.
