Like in the PM.
First thing, FSV. If no click, there's your problem.
If it clicks, and you have fuel at the shraeder, loosen injector lines and bleed. If by some odd chance it wont bleed, but you have fuel at teh shraeder, could mean your IP is beyond toast.
Dont use ether, if anything just plug it in for a little bit if you can, otherwise the fire was due to functioning glow plugs. The glow plug setup on a truck like that works so that if the WTS light comes on for 8 or so seconds, you are good to go. As glow plugs burn it, it will stay on for shorter amounts of time. If you turn the key and it goes right to flicking on and off, your glow plugs are shot. But you had ether explosion, so your glow plugs are fine.
