Glow Plug problems

My controller just clicks on my 1988 ford F350 and never sends a constant 12 volts to glow plugs. If I unplug glow plug lead it stops. Tried a brand new controller and had same results. The wires to glow plugs have been cut here and there but repaired. I checked several glow plugs and they seem good.. Where from here.

Could be?

I guess I'll have to dig it all out of the tape and re splice.
