Your hunch is right.  You need a starter from a diesel.  Go to or call
wrecking yards.  Pull your own if you can.  Some folks like the old
Rabbit type starter better than the newer ones.  Either one will fit.

My starter is quiting on my 90 diesel jetta (non turbo). It turns over
smokes a bit, and drains the battery. I went to the hole in the wall vw
for one, and they want to give me a gasser starter. I told them I
thought the
diesel starter was more robust, and wasn't sure if the gas starter would
it. They only wanted $30 for it, so price is right. Anyone think this
will be
an accepteable replacement? I'm pretty sceptacle.
