Questions on a B&S 14hp OHV engine

I have this engine which was originally on a MTD or Murry Lawn tractor. I am intending to use it on a powered deck for on a ATV.

I am not familiar to much with the newer OHV engines per se, but my questions are:

What is the wire that goes to the carb flaot bowl for. Its a solenoid from what I figurerd out when I dissassembled the carb to clean it. Is it necessary for this engine to work, here in the south. Someone once told me IIRC it was an electric type choke for cold weather.

Now my other question is what are the two pairs of wires for that come out under the shroud. There is one pair of red and black and another pair of red and black, with the red wire on this pair haiiving what I assume to be the diode in the harness that would go to the charging circuit?

None of these wires are off the starter, 4 wires (2 pairs) come out from inside the engine.

I think you can probably find it online pretty easy if you got a part number. You can probably find the schematics online to figure out the part number too.
