Your weather has been getting down into the 30's at night, right? You will find that if you don't use a block heater the engine won't fire right up when you want it to. Do you have access to any power that you could run a cord to and plug in your block heater? Do you have a block heater installed on this?

What kind of engine are you running here? Does it have glow plugs? If so have you tested them to see if they are working? By new do you mean a whole new machine or that you rebuilt the engine and injection system?

Do you ever have to prime up the injectors after it has been sitting for a while? Sometimes a check valve in the lift pump can go bad and allow fuel to drain back down on the feed line overnight. Causes a long crank time to get it to start in the morning. Any easy way to check for that is to plumb in a small valve on the feed line just before the lift pump. Close it when you are done welding for the day. If keeping that valve shut at night gets your engine to start easily in the morning you have found the problem and also a fix for it.
