Usually you just need to clean the area around the filter so no debris drops into the new filter or housing.If your filter is one that is at an angle to put diesel fuel in it when installing it I would fill it with diesel fuel manually then install the filter so it starts up with ease.If you have a primer bulb then you would loosen the air bleed screw near the prime bulb ( if equipped) to prime and purge air or if no primer bulb is found just pump the primer several times to fill the filter and then it should start and run.
