2006 sullair with a jd engine keeps shutting off soon as it starts

I have a 2006 185cfm with a turbo jd motor. My problem is as soon as I start the engine it puffs black smoke runs for about 5 seconds then shuts off. It seems like as soon as the incinerator gets to rpm it shuts down. I can start it right back up and same thing. It never takes any time to start. I have put a test light of on the positive side of the fuel cutting off solenoid and the light remains on from start and stays on while the engine dies. Any ideas???

Black smoke suggests incomplete combustion, which suggests not enough air for the fuel, which may mean the turbo is blown.
