do you have to fill the canister with diesel before you screw it back in. I was told you have to but its a pain in the ****.

no....its a self priming system. The diesel you pour into the canister is not filtered. Filling it first would allow unfiltered fuel into the engine....

You will just have to crank it a little bit, after you cycle the pump a few times with the key.

depends on your year. some are spin ons, some are 5.9 style. yours being an 11 is a 5.9 style. very very easy. 1 1/8 socket on a breaker bar, do not over tighten, and replace o ring every time.

of course if it was an 08, those are easy too, reach through the fender well cut out.
