Man I hate to hear that. Are you sure it ain’t hydrolocked since it’s been sitting. With the starter making that noise and the bolt braking I would take out some glow plugs and see if any coolant is in the cylinders.

I had drove it and came out to run to get some food and it wouldn’t crank over. It was still warm. Starter looks like cylinoid is melted. Punched myself in the nose when bolt broke so that sucked even more:p

Sounds like a rough day for you and the truck. You broke the trucks starter bolt so it tried to break your nose.
