All I could think of is a ground and hot wire for an electric choke, if so equipped....but then I'm an AFB guy

Here's a shot of that Carter clone that tried to burn up BB a few years back;



That black cylindrical unit on the left front is how Carter mounts their electric chokes of the AFB (among others), other manufacturers may position them elsewhere but characteristic of these is the often black body with the adjacent increments that is the adjustment for the choke butterfly (lean or rich for summer or winter)

On this AFB clone (and the genuine article) there are two spade connectors on the side of that black cylinder. Perhaps yours are broken off? I hope not!

Random question. Anybody ever patch small holes in the floorboards with fiberglass?

As the floor drain plugs were missing when I first got 'BB' I found new ones at the hardware store from 20 cents each.
