Run it up on a clean gallon can of fuel and work your way back to the tank. Sounds like a bug in your fuel

compression was only 120 psi per cilinder. I've started the engine for a long time today without the glowplugs so no compression, and now there is some diesel on injector 2 and 3. Engine still will not start. I have now started too long and my starter is dead...
I think I will have to give up...

Have you burnt out the starter? Go to a car breaker and get a starter motor off an Astra or cavalier 1.7 diesel. It should bolt straight on and It will do until you get yours repaired. I'm not sure what they do to marinise them.
