    You didn't do anything wrong, it just has a little air left in the system from the fluid change and is totally normal..

    It will usually work itself out on it's own but if you want to speed up the process:

    Back the truck up a steep hill or driveway and set the blade on the ground. Raise it slightly until it's just off the ground. Now angle it back and forth a few time's. This will push any remaining air out of the angle cylinder, and with the back of the cylinder higher (where the hose port is) it will allow the air trapped in the cylinder to more easily escape and travel back to the reservoir..

    Make sure to recheck the fluid level once you do get all the air out.
