I'm very ignorant about diesels. The extent of my experience is owning a Mercedes years ago, and the Universal 21 in my Catalina 36.
One thing that hasn't been mentioned yet, does your engine have a glow-plug pre-heat? In the two engines that I've used, both required the glow-plugs to be pre-heated for 10-15 seconds in order for the engine to start. If this didn't happen, the engine would never start.
