OK. Sounds good.
I have had the car on jack stands and have put in about 3 to 4 hours of work going back and forth with the engine off.
If it doesn't work, time for a new pump.
There are no leaks from the hoses, no drips on the ground. Everything worked before I took it off.
So here goes.
P.*. Even with the car on jack stands, it has been excellent upper body exercise.

"Its going to make the noise a little and foam in the resevoir thats the air leaving the system. When the noise stops (keep the engine running) & look in the resevoir to make sure there are no bubbles/foam. If not your done."
