Carb wires?

Can someone please help me identify what wires these are and what I need to hook them up to?
I just picked up my first CJ, so I'm learning as I go. First carbureted vehicle too so things look a little foreign to me. The yellow wire in the attachment below is the one in question. It connects to both sides of the carb then ran through the firewall but I have no idea what it should connect too. Thanks for the help guys

Looks like it may be previous owner mods. What kind of carb is it? What year is your Jeep? My carb in an 82 only has 2 wires, one for the choke and one for ground.

That looks to be a solenoid for a Weber 32/36 or a 38 DGV. Used to increase the rpm during low idle for either A/C or other means.

Its an 85, not sure about any previous mods I bought it of a buddy and he bought it off of a shady offroad dealer. It runs good other than the vacuum leaks that seem to be everywhere. I was just going through all the wiring to make sure things are hooked up correctly but i'm stuck on this one.

You more than likely have a 32/36 due to it having that solenoid there. One way to know for sure is the 38 has two synchronized gears that the linkage connects to which I don't believe the 32/36 has.

Without seeing the entire carb, I'm only guessing it is a Weber 32/36.
The yellow wire is going to the solenoid type valve. The other red wires are all choke wires but since it may have a non OEM carb, only one wire will be needed to control the choke.

That's not a Weber 32/36 unless it's of an old design. Mine looks nothing like that.

When you take the new pics, be sure to pull the filter and take them so we can see the whole thing.

Edit: I pulled up some pics of a motorcraft carb and it looks similar but not sure with the current pics.

Looks more like an idle cutoff so it will cut the gas flow to the idle circuit when the engine is turned off.

I had something like that on a couple of webers off a Fiat 128 and also on an old Solex carb.

For example:

That makes sense John. I know Weber sells additional devices for their carb and the fuel cutoff solenoid was one of them.
