Hey Moots,

My ride is the 540 (V8). I don't have a "screw/bleeder" on the thermostat housing, nor is there a nylon (as per the dealers suggestion) screw/cap on the top of my rad (there is the drain cock on the left bottom). When it came time to re-fill, I took off the heater hose that comes from the rear of the engine, and goes to the water valve (Looks like a mechanical heart valve for humans!). So far it seems to work (no heat loss, nor coolant refilling), I just thought there was an easier way...........


Cheers


Gary 540 Siuco
