Prongs on coolant manifold?
What are those things sticking up with plastic around them on the coolant manifold. They are bolted on right above thermostat and pop off?
I cant figure out there purpose?

They are for the spark plug boots when you unplug the spark plug wires. IT grounds them so if you were to crank the engine while the wires are off, you will not damage the electronics or create a spark.

Yep. They are handy if you flip your ski and get water in the engine. You can ground the plug wires, remove the plugs, and then crank until water stops spraying out. Without that grounding bar you run the risk of ruining your electronics while cranking.
