Have you took it for a drive??

They are renowned for being a bitch to bleed.

After getting it about there, I used to find just going for a drive and getting some revs going should push any air back to the rad.

Yes the B18's are an absolute mare to bleed sometimes. Just takes a lot of time so stick at it mate.

I know could do with a vent on the stat housing really. I have a couple of tricks now works every time.

To some degree yes. There is always a pressure increase not from the pump but the temperature increase.

You have standard radiator cap or 1.3 bar?
