1988 F250 7.3 starting troubles

My very first truck! I've replaced glow plugs, fuelfilter,but it still wont
start on its own used starter fluid got it running once last weekdrives and
runs fine but when i tried to do it again it just keeps turning over so i
quit trying for fear of draining batteries asked diesel instructer he said
the glow plug wait light should stay on 15 secs to get a proper start and
he said to replace some module that 7.3L have this trouble with this part
what should i do maybe its the fuel lines possibly water not sure any
advice would be great

Check for power at the glowplugs, if no power check power to and from the
"module"

Looks like a starter relay , sits on right side of the valley.

Re: 1988 F250 7.3 starting troubles

how long does the glow light stay on with a cold engine??
does it want to start then die, or just crank??
when turning over does it blow white smoke out the exhaust, or nothing??
