This is the wiring diagram that is titled as 91 - 96, but I expect it will be 97 as well.
Joe-B is correct. There are 4 wires - 2 to the fuel level sensor and 2 to the fuel pump.
Repairing the plastic nut - as you are in Oz, there is a product here branded Q bond. Go to Repco and ask for it, it may not be on the shelf. It is a bonding kit that contains product for grey and black plastic and one of these (grey option in the kit?) is good for metal. Plastics are difficult to bond and (shoot me down) but Araldite is not the solution. The kit costs about AUD$40 and goes a very long way. I have 3 bikes that grace the product plus a few jobs around home and still only used about 30% of the grey part.
I don't remember why now, but I have a full, multi-lingual workshop manual for the 750/900 91-96 on my computer, which i can upload to a web site for downloading - just need your email address to give you permission to download (after I upload)
If it was in my possession I would do the following.
Buy a new battery and charge it properly - be patient!
Get/squirt some oil into the rocker covers and a tiny bit into the cylinders via the spark plug hole - then let it sit for an hour or so.
Drain and clean the carbs to get rid of old fuel/gum or use an additive that purports to clean carbs and fuel lines.
Make sure the floats are not stuck.
Crank the engine a few times to get oil moving around the moving parts then leave for a while for oil to spread.
Then start and run the engine until hot, then dump and replace oil.
Then ride and enjoy.
