Just replaced radiator in D17 series 1, not highly skilled in mechanic work. Simple enough to change, just need to know if there is anything I need to do after filling radiator to make sure it don’t get air locked or is that even a thing?

I've had that happen on a Buda. Just fill it real slow and let it settle between pours till it's full.

A D-17 gas tractor cooling system hold 14 1/2 quarts. So, if you get 14 or so quarts poured in, you are good to go. There are some engines that have a burp plug located up high on the cylinder head to allow the trapped air to escape. This isn't one of those.

When I refill a empty radiator I run the motor at a fast idle and leave the radiator cap off and wait until the coolant circulates, never had a problem with "air lock".

Yes that can be an issue with some engines. Never had it be an issue with this one. There should be a good sized bypass hose between the thermostat housing and the water pump.
