  One of the best tips came from Zoran ( surprise, surprise !) and that 
is to tap the lines with the handle of a screwdriver. Do that over the 
length to help move the trapped bubbles. Also a bleeder at the MC is the 
best investment, otherwise, just rap a ragaround the banjo and slightly 
loosen it to get any air trapped up at the MC out.
