OK, For eighteen days, I've been purging air from the fuel head every morning before starting #2 CRD. I find more air when the outside temperatures have been cold, possibly explaining why I did not have this trouble during the summer.
While doing this, I have not had any more starting issues.
So, I'm following Sir Sam's footsteps and have ordered an Airtex E7181M to install in the tank. Either I will eliminate the air or cause a hidden leak to show it's self.
I'm really not looking forward to dropping the fuel tank
I will keep everyone up to date on how things go.
