Sounds like your 1 way bearing is slippping. Try not to pull start the truck when it seems 'stuck'. You're probably flooded if this happens. Pull out the glow plug and turn over the truck so any dirt doesn't flow back into the motor, then pull start the truck while its upside down to release the fuel.

Its a big engine and I noticed its not easy to tell when you're flooding because of all the compression its packing.

the oneway bearing is in the block, so it is common to slip if you flood the motor...

losen the glowplug a bit when starting, this will also put less streass on the oneway
You can drive a fast truck slow, but you can't drive a slow truck fast!
