    You shouldn't have to, but take it easy at first and see how it all works.

    Always fill the new filter(s) with oil before installing, Once the system is re-filled raise and block the drive wheels off the ground. Start the engine and run about 3/4 throttle, Move the controls full forward then full reverse slowly 8 to 10 times then re-check fluid level.

    Set it back on the ground and go mow......
