Oh well, so long as it works right???
Might not be his first time paperplane. Still wondering why this proved clarify, your method works, and is the preferred method to evacuate stuff from the radiator when draining it during the flush, but it should not have been needed for basic bleeding and the OP clearly had tried a few times according to the bentley method, which though different from mine, should not have left sufficient air in there for the car to run hot.

I'm concerned that there may be another problem in there that has been overlooked. When I recently fixed my old radiator after a flush, I failed to clamp the rad hose tightly, even though I thought I did and had flushed it many times before. Carelessness can sometimes cause issues. I'm just being anal I know. But the cooling system, when it self destructs, does so quickly and our car does not come with an overheat alarm siren.
