Seems you have a leak somewhere in the fuel system.check all lines for moisture from fuel. Leak could be anywhere between fuek tank and injectors. Check all fuel fittings, could even be a bad seal on fuel filter. An air leak is really hard to find at times. Patience is the key, may not be a real quick fix. Good luck

Are you letting the glow plugs get hot enough? Does it have glow plugs? How about the battery? Does it die down while all this is happening? Might want to think about using starting fluid on cold days. My tractor would fire on cold days and the battery would be half dead, but I always waited for the plugs to get hot enough.
