Bought it at an estate sale been sitting it a warehouse for 10 years. Its acting like it’s got a valve stuck open with a piston hitting it. Won’t go a full revolution. Any ideas? It’s getting fuel. Glow plugs are working. It just won’t turn a full revolution.

You could begin by removing the glow plugs and see if the engine is hydrolocked and if that is okay - upon your suspicion, remove the valve cover and inspect the valve train. Good time to bar the engine over by hand and watch the rocker arms move and observe what is happening. Also, while you have the glow plugs out inspect the tips for physical damage.
