leyland/daf cold start

Hi all,
I have recently bought a mid eightys Leyland/daf 160ti. I have rebuilt the Cummins 6 BT engine and have noticed there is no provision for glow plugs. On the Dodge pickups with this engine there is a heater element grid bolted to the intake manifold. My engine has nothing. I visited a scrap yard where there are at least 30 of these Cummins motors (turboed and N/A) on the floor and none has any kind of heater plugs. Does this engine not need a cold start system or am I missing something.

I have an idea that the pump has a cam ring inside it that works off of the fuel pressure. As soon as the engine stops it advances the timing to help with cold starting - then once the fuel pressure builds up it drops back to the normal running position.
