28 Essex Coolant

When changing the coolant on an Essex Super Six do I have to worry about introducing air into the system? Or can I simply drain the coolant and poor the new coolant in? Also, the spec sheet says it holds 4 3/4 gallons, but it only accepted 4 1/4 before it reached just below the cap. Should I fill it all the way to the cap? Should the tube at the top be submerged?

    Just fill it up to below the overflow.   As it heats up the water will expand and  blow out the overflow, so don't bother topping it up again.  
    If you're stuck in a hole, stop digging.
