Gidday all,

Any one found/use a fail safe way of bleeding the cooling systems. I've previously had to do it two or three time in the past. I'm flushing & replacing with distilled water & "water wetter". They are pain to bleed! It's always a long process!

Its extremely easy.

There are two bleeder screws/bolts on the back of each black plastic cap on each head. It is where the coolant line crosses between the heads. All you have to do is fillteh machinefull of coolant leave the radiator cap off let it idle and get hot and then just loosen each bolt alternating sides until you get no air bubbles and all coolant.

Shouldn't take more than 5 minutes.

Yes. Do the bleeder on the rear head first as it is lower.

Sorry to open up this old thread but when you guys are doing the burping technique, do you pull the screw completely out so you can tell its good flow or just to where you see it running out? Seems kinda hard to tell if you have a good flow if the screw is still there.

Radiator relocate

My local repair shop installed a filler neck and cap from a motorcycle it is at the highest poit and level. Filling is easy and can run with it open and no spillage. I have never had to use the bleeders in the back of the engine. I filled it ran it with it open refilled it ran it again for 20 minutes and topped it off.

****************

Mybe the reason that some are having so much trouble bleeding the air out of the system is the there is no talk of the bleeder screw on top of the Tstat housing.

Two things that can be easily over looked in the tex

Draining system: Partially unscrew plug below water pump housing.
