On the C10 there are 2 air bleeds.  First is on the side of the Thermostat RHS of bike above the carbs.  The second is on the Water Pump. LHS above foot peg.    The drain screw is under the LHS of the bike on the tube that connects the water pump to the radiator, you will need to remove the belly pan.    If I recall correctly there are pictures in our technical section.    All need a 10mm socket.    Colin Prior  COG Webmaster    Lake Forest Park WA  COG#7767  AMA#1081764  ROK#20000617

Just what Colin said. However never open up the lower bleeder with the engine running. You can cause a condition called cavitation. And that is not good for the pump!
