Cheers,

I've used both bled screws and they seem OK, so I should be fine. Fingers crossed!

I'd suggest to anyone with the original stat housing if they are doing any work on the engine and already have the airbox off to replace it with one with a metal union, for 20 it's well worth doing to avoid it leaving you stranded or risking overheating.

Actually check it does have a metal union though, despite being pictured with the metal union the one ordered is plastic.
