Newbie needing help.

I am not a expert by any stretch and would appreciate any help i can get here.
 
I have a John Deere F680 front mower. It came with a CH20 on it. The engine died. I think it probably slung a rod. I bought a new engine from Padgett, a CH23-76579 which is natural gas. I also bought a new carb off ebay. I swapped the intake off the CH20 on the CH23 and mounted the carb.
 
here is the problem: the new engine has an advanced timing module or something and does not have the connector that goes to the carb. I don't even know what the wire on the carb does. I am sure it isn't a chose b/c it has a manual choke.
 
Can anyone tell me what to do about that connection? do i splice the connection into the timing module? leave it unhooked or what?

Okay the wire is what I thought it was on the JD spec'd engine. It is an anti-after fire solenoid. It need to have 12v on it during startup and while the engine is running. You should a wire coming off the engine connector that would have this switched 12v.
 
Btw the your current appears to have a SAM (Spark Advance Module) ignition setup.
