Okay last post, really.

When you disturb an engines water system, you need to follow this procedure to burp the system (no matter what engine):
1. Fill with water, der
2. Turn heater to max hot
3. Do NOT put radiator cap on
4. Start engine and warm up, with lowish revs. If you rev the engine you may cause water to come out of radiator cap opening
5. When the thermostat opens the engine will burp and the radiator water level will drop
6. While engine is running, top up water and put radiator cap on
7. Done

Critical that the radiator cap is not installed before this is done.
