HemiGTX is on a distinguished road

So the best thing to try right now would be pulling the hose off the heater core and letting it fill up with coolant? Or is there another way to rid the system of air pockets?

Also, with removing the heater core line, I'm guessing ones a feed line and the other a return line. Is there a way to tell which is which before I pull them, or is just a "pull a hose, and if coolant is coming out of the hose instead of the heater core, you've pulled the wrong hose" type a deal.

And once I do that, once I pull the hose, is it gonna allow coolant to begin to flow threw, or is it gonna need some suction to get it going?

Again, thanks for the help guys. Just want to know all the options before I spend my time out in the cold.
