Chassis lubercation systym

I have a 57 300C Adenauer W186 with chassis lube system. I rebuilt the pump, cleaned out all the lines and now I am trying to bleed the system.
What little info I have found say's you can not bleed it like a brake system because the oil is so thick.
I have gravity bleed the main lines but cannot seem to get the oil to flow thru the distribution blocks along the chassis, they have some kind of spring loaded rubber valve in them going to the indivigable lube points.
Can anybody shed some light on this for me before I pull my hair out.
Thanks in advance for any help, Steve

Just lube the chassis yourself with a grease gun, those systems are more trouble than they're worth.
