V6 Coolant bleeding points!

I have a V6 156 with a CF3 engine. Now I know these motors are basically self bleeding but I think mine may have some air caught in the system as it runs a bit hotter than it did before I replaced the coolant. Never overheats but runs a bit past 90. Has a new waterpump and recent radiator.

I know there is a bleed point on back of rad on right side of car which I have bled but I have read on here that there is one on the back of the engine but I cant see one anywhere. Am I just being blind or does the CF3 not have this feature. Any tips on a proper bleeding of a V6?

Have searched on here but most posts seem to relate to 4 pot motors rather than the mighty V6!!

Thanks in advance.
