6.2L Won't start without a shot of ether.

Hello all, I am new here, not too new to Diesels, own a 2015 3500 Duramax, still under warranty, not new to working on vehicles, as I have done so all my life, 50+ years. I am new to working on diesels. Just bought a 1984 GMC 3500 6.2l Stake side, to work around my farm with. I was told that it was not the original motor, tho the truck was originally a 6.2l, it has a Toole Army Depot 6.2l engine in it now. I need some help or info, so to start the truck, a minor bit of ether is needed, which I see here is not a good thing, after that she runs beautifully. Would seem to be an initial fuel issue, but I don't have a clue, where to start. Help please.
