is it the paper type filter that sits in a case above the steering rack ???
if so they are normally self priming and there will be a small bleed valve on the bottom of the case to get rid of any air in the system

should be totally self bleeding , make sure you have more than quarter tank of fuel in , it is known that when diesels get low on fuel they pull air bubbles up the fuel line & when left standing the air will come to the top allowing the diesel to drain back.
