If a diesel engine is getting fuel but not firing up you usually see unburnt fuel in the from of smelly white smoke coming from the exhaust. I suspect its a fuel problem. Have you any way of checking if fuel is getting to the engine - does you engine have a hand operated fuel priming bulb or button
