I'll ask you, did you Confirm that there is a hole thru the bottom and the top hose barbs? Sometimes heat and compression from the hoses and spring clips can collapse the nipples Closed.
The Bottom barb lets the hot pressurized coolant In from the radiator (and allows the Radiator to 'suck' coolant back in) and the Top barb lets the pressure out.
