I dont think there are any dedicated bleed points for the V8's.
What I do is make sure the radiator filling snorkel is the highest point and with the heater valve set fully hot, fill the cooling system. With the radiator cap left off I start the car and let it heat up until the thermostat opens, the collant will drop and will need to be filled as the air pockets are expelled. Replace the cap and let the system pressurise. Fill the header tank to the correct level.

Stop the car and let it cool down before checking the radiator and header tank level.
