probably air bound, get it warm enough for the thermostat to open and it will take more fluid

Not familiar with whatever tractor you are working, but most of them have 2 drains, one for the block and one for the radiator. Did you drain both, and did you verify how much came out?
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
