Shuts down after a few seconds

Hello I am hoping for some help here. I have a Case 235 4WD circa 1988 compact tractor, 3 cylinder Mitsubishi diesel that I use for mowing. It will start right up and then shut down after a few seconds. In an attempt to fix it, I have changed the oil pressure switch and cleaned the fuel cup and bled the fuel system. Any ideas?

The second part of my post is a question. When I purchased this tractor the previous owner told me to turn the key to the first position and wait to hear a click before I try starting the engine. What does that click mean and where does it come from? Thank You and have a great tractor day.

Have you changed the fuel filters?
