Propably your glow plug like everyone has said, but if you changed the head clearance, it could also be that, and you would have to retune the engine a bit.

But he said once he takes the glow igniter off it shuts off. that means that the glow plug is dead. Because when its on its giveing alot of power to heat it and then one it comes off the glow plug has nothing. Even if it looks like it has some still replace it. Thatshould work.
