I had over 1000 hours on my JD6115D since the original 500 hour fuel filter change. Now that i changed both the primary and secondary fuel filters, it's seems to start harder. Before it would fire up after turning over a few times, now it noticeable more times of turning over before it fires up. Did i do something wrong? (I first thought it was just cold, but now that it's warmed up it's still happening.)

Probably has a little air in it. I wouldn't worry about it.

The service manual indicates a fuel system bleed is needed after changing the filters. Could that be it?

Seems to be ok now

After a couple months of using it more regularly the hard starting has gone away. Might have been a little air in the system and it finally worked its way out? Thanks for all the replies. It's not a fancy tractor but i sure haven't had any problems with it. Pulls a 6 row kinze planter with liquid and great plains1205NT grain drill easily. Guess my only complaint is with only a 9 speed i can't seem to get the right gear for that 4-5 mph planting sweet spot.
