I have no idea what you're saying. What do you mean "whining"?
Are you saying the motor cranks\spins but it doesn't "fire up"?
Also, if the motor turns over (rotates), but did you replace the battery and starter? An engine needs 3 things to operate.... compression, fuel and spark (in a gasser)...... since you have a diesel, you only need compression, fuel and cranking.... sounds like you're not getting fuel right away.... if your fuel lines are loosing pressure because of a slow leak or something, that might do it.
