Bill, there should be bleed screws on the ram (unless you have a T-type).
I also have Wagner pumps...they are workhorses.
Also good call on removing as much copper tubing as possible and replacing with hose. This is exactly what I did. You will be happier in the long run and have less worries about leaks
. Measure the run accurately and have the hoses professionally built. Plan for a good radius when bending the line along it's path and reduce the 90 degree couplings as much as possible. 3-t's should do it. (pump - ram - autopilot).
I've attached some information on Wagner pumps and also bleeding info for N-Type systems.
Oh...I had my pumps and ram rebuilt in Seattle
at a place called Hamilton Jet, and was even able to purchase
a spare rebuild
Hope this helps.
