Replace fuel lines and add fresh gas they are gummed.... Also you plug is gonna be wrong for the temp outside like I told you last night.
the fuel lines look clear. im sure your right on the temp. i got 3 different glow plugs with it. i tried them all, or atleast 2.

hey bro, you can try heating the engine up with a hair dryer a couple of inches away for about 3-4 minutes. That usually helps it to start up.

Going in a half turn is kinda a over kill...that needle should be set flush with the inner ring ...that will get you in the ball park

Your factory 3.3 settings are 1-1/2 out on the LSN or flush with the throttle horn and 3-1/2 to 4 out on the HSN. Tune from there.
