The 9C1 Radiator does not have an internal engine oil cooler like the standard Caprice/SS Radiator. It's actually narrower width wise.
To properly bleed the cooling system.
1) Jack up car so front wheels are about 8" or so off the ground, use jackstands to support.
2) Open bleeder screw, brass fitting with spot for screwdriver, on upper radiator hose connection on the water pump.
3) pour coolant into reservoir until you see a stream of coolant coming out of bleeder screw and then close the bleeder screw.
4) start car and let it warm up until the thermostat opens and you see coolant
moving in the reservoir.
5)top off reservoir as needed when the thermostat opens and let car run for a few minutes until its total up to temp and turn on your heater and make sure it gets hot
6) shut car off, take down off stands and let cool and then check the reservoir level when its cold and top off to full cold line.
you should be good to go at that point
