Default HELP?.?. 92 f30 7.3l idi not starting

Needing help bought my grandfather in-laws truck have a feeling it may be injector pump he had a new one put in by ford it will go to turn over and you can here it wants to start it started one time for me and my husband but stalled after 30 secs to 1 min have checked to make sure there is no air in the lines
My husband has a 96 7.3 powerstroke so he hasn't had to deal with in the injector pump issues but with research I saw if the glow plugs are bad it will have trouble starting so if all the glow plugs are bad will it be causing this or is just the injector pump you can tell it wants to turn over and run but something is just not letting it

The thing is the engine will usually start fine with two or three dead glow plugs... but after a couple more die, you're past the tipping point and it may not start anymore. Doesn't really matter if its a IDI or PSD engine... or an old Chevy 6.2L diesel.

Make sure you're glowplugs are working (multimeter ohm test). If they're not getting power, you may have a controller issue. That's usually when I wire up a pushbutton and solenoid for manual control. has a much busier IDI section...
