Before you throw a set of glow plugs at it, I suggest you start with running 10W30 CJ-4 Ford/Motorcraft engine oil in it. Monitor your fuel pressure. It should run steady at 56 psi, and drop to no less than 45 psi under full load. This can be checked at the secondary fuel filter housing beside the fuel pressure regulator, where you'll find a 6mm allen head plug that can be removed to installl a gauge. If fuel pressure drops to less than 45, replace the fuel pressure regulator (3C3Z-9T517-AE, NOT the IPR valve) to start, and then the fuel pump if necessary. First and foremost, fix the dying the injector. Try using Ford's PM-22-A and PM-23-A additives. They are very inexpensive, and they produce a very noticeable change in engine performance when they are used.
