This problem can mostly be solved by loosening the filter so it can be rotated by hand then drill a hole in its butt end at 12 O'clock. Rotate the filter until the hole is at 6 O'clock so it drains into the makeshift funnel you made and the oil enters the container of your choice.

That's fine for removing, but what about installing new filter after pre-filling 2/3 full of oil! Bob

Oil remains on the bearings and it isn't detrimental for the engine to run a few revolutions until the filter fills.
If it's a concern, remove the plugs so there is 0.0 compression pressure on the bearings and crank a few revolutions to fill the filter.

I had a new ford pickup truck that had a bearing knock every time it was started until the oil pres. light went out. Ford said that's normal.

That doesn't work on a diesel engine.

I doubt it's a bearing knock. It's most likely a valve train issue, lifter, push rod, rocker arm.
A bearing knock is not a good thing.
