If starting from empty pull the top radiator hose off the engine and fill the radiator until coolant starts to flow from the engine hose bib. replace and tighten hose. Fill the overflow tank with coolant. Locate the vent on the coolant hose bib (brass fitting), start the engine and allow coolant flow to purge the air from the system. When coolant flows steadily close the vent. Re-top up the overflow tank.
