Thanks for all the suggestions. I will check on the glow plugs this weekend. I do not think there is a load on the motor that is keeping it from turning over fast enough. I think the starter is original so it is 25 years old. But what I can"t figure out is how fast does the motor need to turn over to start?

Also I noticed that the ground wire off the battery gets warm when I am cranking it over for a time. All the connections are solid - what causes this and can the issues be related? Thanks again.

If it's puffing black smoke, the fuel is already burned. The glow plugs are not the problem. If it was already running before you accidentally shut it off, I think the air cleaner is at least clear enough to start. If it is puffing black smoke, it is firing. Something is preventing the engine from spinning above cranking speed. Yes, it is quite natural for the battery cable to get hot in this situation, especially if the cable is undersize.

make sure you have a good ground connection (clean and bright at the chasis connection) and that your cables and terminals are not corroded and of the correct size.
