Just from the sounds of it i would lean towards the glow plugs.
To me it sounds like your cranking it and then finaly the chamber gets warm enough to combust and to start.
Might also be a combo of glow plugs and injectors.
I know right now i have been doing my cooling system flush and my truck starts just fine but it woont warm up to operating temp as i took the T stat out to make the flush/drain cyccles faster and when i did the 2 90 minute runs for the Restore and VC9 my truck wouldnt reach op temp unless i kept it over 2200 RPM and going up hill. The whole time i got crapy milage and it was pretty weak compared to normal.
Looking forward to getting the VC9 flushed out today and filled with ELC and a new T stat
