Hydro lift 1450

I replaced the hydro lines on the lift. Lines and cylinder are empty. Should I just start it up and cycle the sytem or do I need to burp the system?

Yes, start and cycle the lift up and down. It will take a while, but that is the only way to bleed the air out of the system. It will not hurt anything to run it with the air in it, so I would not bother trying to burp it, you'll just make a mess. The air will return to the reservoir (rear differential) and will not get into the pump, so it's perfectly fine.
