There's probably just air in some of the lines, oil or fuel or both. Probably fuel if it runs on ether but not without it.
Just crank on it for a while and then let it sit. Then repeat. And keep going till it starts. Once it does keep it idling high.
If you DO run ether, disconnect your glow plugs. If you don't, it can cause early detonation and not do good things.
