I Bow at Steve's feet.
He is my Subaguru.

I drove 2300km to get my Wonder Brumby tuned by him.
He supplied my whole drivetrain.

Don't worry too much about long radiator hose lengths. There are thousands of VW vanagons out there that are longer than most soobs and have a radiator in front and an engine in back. Also, just because the loop is long, doesn't imply you need a booster pump. The regular water pump is more than adequate. If you need a good hose to run long distances, try marine exhaust hose. It is super heavy duty. It is reinforced with a metal coil and has a tough fabric cover. It's a little expensive, but not too bad when you consider the convienience. A boat supply shop can help you, or you can buy it online. If you buy online do a lot of searching. Prices are all over the map.

Oh, yeah about bleeding. Its not rocket science. Just be sure you tee-off isolated high spots with small bleed hoses to collect air and send it back to the your radiator or resevoir where the radiator cap is.
