    i've found out that the air lock is in the turbo between the 2 water pipes has water is flowing perfect apart from the water pipe that goes to the turbo and back to the header tank theres a bolt between the 2 pipes but not sure if its a bleed bolt or not? does anyone know if it is or not? cheers andy
