Check the compression. If it is in spec you will probably not need a re-build.
Next look for the air bleed. If the injectors are working in air you will wear out the starter before it pops. I don't know your's but mine has both manual and electric pre-charge pumps. This was sill not sufficient to overcome a tiny leak in an induction fitting - nothing but air. Open the fuel rail at each injector and pump out all air.
Diesel is pretty simple in the end. Fuel + Compression = bang. Make sure you know where the fuel/engine kill is or you will not be able to stop it. (Experience)
