Hard Starting 99

Hi guys I am new to the 7.3 side of this site but am not new to the diesel world as I have the infamos 6.0. So here is my problem I belong to a hunting camp that uses a 1999 7.3 non turbo that only gets run for a couple of weeks a year. When we go to start it it truns over fine but cranks and cranks untill sometimes it starts and sometimes it needs a jump, then as long as we keep it warm it is fine until it cools down or the next morning and we start all over again. The first thing I checked was the glow plugs and they seemed fine ,replaced the relay new batteries. Anyone have any ideas? Before anyone says it I know having a diesel for only a couple of uses a year is not good but they would not listen to me so here we are.

A 99 non turbo? Didn't think there was such a truck?
How did you check the GPs?

Figured that's what you meant.
This method for testing the GPs and GPR is on a newer model, but the same ideas apply.
