I think my father had an issue like this with his old golf 85 vw diesel. He added a fuel transfer pump he turned on before cranking and it fixed the issue.

You could try running more voltage through the starter, get like 3 6 volt batteries, but I wouldnt double it. You may spin it too fast throwing the windings off the coil.
