Hi there James here I am trying to get my jcb 214 Back hoe running. The motor starts for about five seconds then stalls out, after that it will not start, a half hour later i can do the same thing. I have drained out all the diesel and repaced it with new diesel, repalced the fuel filter, removed the intake filter. one note the old filter was only half full when I removed it, the new filter was filled to the top and the engine did run for about 30 seconds with the pedal half way down. when I removed the new filter it was only about 3/4 full. I also found a plastic resevoir/cup that had broke of a fixture mounted just back of the fuel filter, Not sure what it is. size is 2.25 by 2.5 with a drain screw on the bottom, glass was dry inside dirty.

I think... without knowing that motor... that the capacitor is a start capacitor, and that the start switch may be trying to "start" the motor full-time instead of switching it out of circuit after it figures that the motor has spun up. I may be wrong - that design may be a capacitor-run motor (similar to a three-phase motor) - but I'm betting it's a start-only capacitor.
If you know someone with a capacitance meter, you could check the capacitor - for both capacitance (to be sure it matches the label) and leakage. Easy way to write that one off. Alternatively, you could rig it such that after the motor's wound up you could manually disconnect the capacitor and see what happens - either the motor stops or else the smoking issue stops.
Whatever you do, don't let it smoke very long. The varnish on the windings is only so thick.
take the fuel filter off pour full in it put it back on changefuel filter next spray some staring fliud in it until starts keep spraying short burst to keep it running until the desil catches and motor runs on desil
if there is electronic throttle then probably needs replacement, get second hand one , or otherwise can try to take it out and clean it, if there is an access to electronic part of it try it open carefully and clean contacts with some alcohol, sometimes it helps
