scudo starting issue

Hi everyone , first post on here and hope you may be able to help me.
I purchased a Scudo 2ltr JTD 2005 which has seen better days but would do me for what i need.
It came with starting issues . It would take upto 5 goes before it would fire up and each turn of the ignition the glowplug light just flashed once on off immediately.
I have changed the glowplugs and it started slightly better but after leaving it for a few days without use it now doesnt even want to fire over.
I have just purchased a glowplug relay and fitted it ,but no difference
with my limited knowledge of diesels I really dont know where to go next.

another thing when it has started it runs lumpy and smokes until warm,then its fine . the pipes ontop of fuel filter do have fuel going through them and i have checked the fuel cut out switch which had popped out but now pressed back in.

any advice would be most welcome as i havent a clue where to go next with it
