Glow plugs are just for heating it so you can start in cold weather. Get a scanner, check for codes, run a contribution and buzz test, check ICP and fuel pressure. Also make sure your fluids and filters are good.

It's a OBDII plug but not fully compliant. The 94's had both and might need a computer upgrade to activate the OBDII. Something like a Autoenginuity with the Ford bundle will read the codes. A buzz test will trigger each injector so you can hear if they are firing.

I don't know much about the OBD1 trucks. From what I have heard they have both connectors, one under the hood and the other under the dash. It takes either a computer swap or reprogram to activate OBD2 if it wasn't already done.

If it were mine with that many miles, I would pull the valve covers and run it, looking at the oil out the injector spouts for uniformity between them. While I was in there I would probably check for loose injector poppet screws and measure the armature clearance (shouldn't be less than 0.002"). Cheers!
