I would find someone with a scanner that can read the injection pressure (ICP pres.) parameter. Sometimes blown injector O-rings will cause a long start because the pressure is bypassing the O-rings. Also you should check the glow plugs and relay. The valve cover gasket connectors can be used to check resistance on each glow plug. I don't remember which pins are which glow plugs but by checking these pins resistance with ground can show a bad glow plug. If they show infinite resistance they are bad. Hope this helps.
