1994 F-350 glow plug problem

My 1994 f-350 has glow plug relay issues. I have replaced the the solenoid and control board that it sits on. My gp's still won't work. They just click. I want to put in a push button but I don't know how. Any help would be much appreciated.

Should I just replace the gp's and hope that fixes it?

Have you tested the glow plugs themselves ?

Nope. I just read up on how to do it. I'm gonna do it in a bit. Is that probably my problem?

Wouldn't do any harm to give a good soaking of a penetrating oil for a while before removing them .Also coating new ones with anti-sieze on the threads is a good idea .

Ok I replaced 2 dead ones. Did a resistance test and there all good will very little resistance and it still doesn't work..sooo I tried to put a push button in to just cycle them that way and endded up burning up the gp control box that the solenoid sets on. Can you tell me where to find info on how its done the right way?
