You should pour some oil through the screen into the HPOP reservoir to aid in starting the truck after your done. Enough to fill up the area under it and just a tad more.
Don't be too concerned about filling it with coolant. That will happen rather quickly once you turn it over.
As far as pouring oil into it, the Low pressure oil pump should fill it pretty quick. Your truck might stall and may take up to 30 seconds of cranking to get it going, but no big deal.

Yup, fill the HPOP reservoir and put it back together. No need to do anything with the cooler itself.
