" I took the air cleaner off and poured so diesel down the throat while turning over."
Never pour anything down the intake of a diesel.
It won't make it start, and it may bend connecting rods.
WD-40 no longer uses propane as the propellant, so that is out also.
If (and only "if") you have NO POWER to the glow plugs, you can try starting fluid. Just a little bit while cranking.
Don't soak the air filter with half a can of ether, then catch the whole mess on fire, & say I told you to*do this.
Can you see the voltage gauge on the dashboard deflect to the left as the glow plugs cycle? If not, start there.
Amp gauge not bouncing says the plugs are not working.
No smoke says air in the pump, probably time for o-rings on the injector caps.
