Please don't use ether on a diesel. For one once a motor gets ethered its becomes addicted in a way. Prime example a farmer I know has a cat, an older one but in good shape. He ethered it from day one when he got it. You can crank on it with several batteries and it won't start, one shot of ether and she starts right up.
Second, outside of that aspect ether can ignite on the glowplugs or grid heater on a dodge and blow up your motor or you. Essentially your starting issues will be the last of your troubles if it hits one of those things.
Despite this warning as well as the one found written by fomoco on your air intake (remember seeing it there), if you must ether it atleast unplug power to the glow plugs.
