Not sure where the smaller diameter take offs go - guess I might see once the engine is back in the boat!
Three scotches to the wind but here it goes: the fittings on your manifold toward the front or the motor should come from your thermostat housing, to send water to cool the exhaust gases. The fittings on the rear of the manifolds, by the transmission are for draining/winterization purposes. I think.
