Unhappy 1981 citation 377 rotax converted to cdi problem

ok here we go i'm one of those back yard mechanics i converted the sled to a cdi or voltage regulator i got pic to show. i just want to hook up ignition switch, kill switch, head light and rear light. it seems like someone before me did some wiring work them selves so i'm not sure if it's original or not. i got some pictures to show what i got coming out of flywheel there is two plugs and wiring for cdi or regulator that's all there is coming out, also in one of the pics there is a little black box with black and yellow wire what is this for do i need it. also there is a hole on the flywheel housing beside brown wires should there be a plug and what's it for timing maybe
can someone send me a wiring diagram or direct me to one
or can someone send me a home made one it's a 1981 citation 4500 377 rotax pull start only. guys it's a bush beater so home made would be just fine

Sorry guys i'm not an electrician just a parts changer
P.S. i replaced all the guts for cdi followed a post from before so don't worry about that

If both yellow wires go into that box in the first picture, that is a rectifier/regulator.
The second one is the "dump style" regulator used in older low wattage systems.
You can eliminate that and use the other one.
