Reservoir should always be above your pump. Allows gravity to feed your pump and minimizes the chance of your pump running dry.

Your rad inlets are at the bottom.. so I'm gonna say you've got lots of air in them.

Your gonna have to tilt, tip, tap, shake those suckers to get the air out.

Yup, agreed. One of my rads is mounted on my case that way and it takes quite a few weeks for all of the air to be worked out. Tilting it around and such and helps, mine also has a screw hole up top so I can bleed some of the air out that way too.

Turn the pump off and see if you can hear water sloshing around at the top of the rad.

I normally tip mine so the out flow is highest and tap out the air by hitting the side of it. Frankly I think all rads should have a bleeder valve on them its annoying.
