    try to move the oil lines around so the bubble can rise to the oil tank.

    I pull the airbleed screw and have someone blow into the oil tank and it will push the air bubble out.

    you should replace the filter
    i had a similar problem and found that the filter was not flowing enough and would not let the bubble pass, when i replades it the bubble went through it
