    Likely more advice available in the 360/430 forum, if it has not already been covered.

    If you do not use an Airlift the 360 is notoriously hard to bleed.

    Agreed, look on the 360 section.

    Rifledriver is right (as always) about bleeding. You can;t even see the bleed screw. I used a goose-neck inspection scope so I could locate it and loosen it. Still a PIA

    Use an Airlift.
