ok so i think i am fallowing but still very confused

Had the same problem when I reassembled mine. The system needs to be bled under a vacuum. I found a procedure somewhere, but basically you get a rubber stopper which fits the top of the reservoir and a vacuum brake bleeder. Drill a hole in the stopper such that the brake bleeder tubing can attach to it and be sealed. You then run the system while pulling a vacuum(less than 20"HG) with the brake bleeder. Shut the engine, add fluid, repeat until the fluid level only changes 3/8" between running and not running. I could not achieve the 3/8" spec, but got it down to about 3/4". The rest did work its way out eventually and now it's fine.
how does that work what do use for vacuum

The brake bleeder is the hand held pump you use to pull brake fluid through the brake lines. It has a small fitting that a hose fits over. The other end of the hose goes through a hole drilled in the rubber stopper.
