Manifold air bleed screws?

Has anyone heard of these? Not sure if exhaust or intake.
I was informed that to keep a load off of the HPOP while priming, that I should remove the "air bleed screws' from the "manifolds" and crank until oil flows from the reservoirs.
Didn't say what reservoirs either.
I feel like a dumb a$$ over here.
Anyone have any idea whats being talked about? Ever heard of this?

Re: Manifold air bleed screws?

Simple actually, though I don't think I would want to unscrew both. What he's referring to are the plug in the driver's side wavy oil rail and the ICP sensor in the passenger side oil rail. You can do the passenger side easily enough by removing the sensor, but I don't think I'd want to have the valve covers off when cranking. Anyway, I did this on mine and have heard of many others doing it. However, you have an '03 engine if I recall, so I don't know if you'll have anything like this. In your case, you may just have to crank away.

Re: Manifold air bleed screws?

I do have the 03 engine. The oil rails do have the screws in them. Allen key IIR. It makes sense to me to unscrew them and relieve the oil pressure and purge the air in the system without putting strain on the pump itself. Once its flowing and I replace the screws, should I put locktite or something on them?

Re: Manifold air bleed screws?

I also poured oil straight into the pump before I put the pump cover on. did you check to see if your pump cover is rubbing on the discharge tube?

Re: Manifold air bleed screws?

IMO..... this is about as necessary as changing the hpop oil. The more things you remove and the more steps you make, the bigger your margin for error is.
