trouble starting

so today i drove my truck in the morning and let it sit for like 7 hours. got in it when it was 60 degrees to leave so i turned the key let it sit for about 2 minutes then tried to start it. and it wouldnt go over. eventually it went but this has been happening a lot lately. i know the guy i bought it from and last year he put new glow plugs in. any ideas?

Glow plug silonoid maybe? How fast does the wait to start light come on and off?

Do you hear it click alot? Also what tends to happen when the GPs go bad is the harness connector thats on the outside of the valve cover burns the pin for the GP when they go bad. SOMETIMES it causes no power to reach the GP. But still look at the silonoid
