George,

Actually, on a pin type engine 6 to 8 seconds is about right. The glow plugs can test good with an ohmmeter and still not work well.

If the engine has good compression(for which proper valve adjustment is necessary) and proper timing, a fresh set of glow plugs will many times turn it into a much easier starting engine.
