Didn't rev, because I was in the garage and didn't have a hose on the end of the bleeder.

That worked. I'll get heat. It had warm before I replaced the thermostat which was stuck open, so I know the heater core is good. Now, it has warm-ish, and I *know* a c900 heater can pump out real heat. We'll get there. Thanks again Dave
