You say you are NOT getting power on both sides of the glow plug relay? You need to have power on both sides when key is ahead, when you turn the key off you should NOT have power on both sides.(try this again when the motor cools down to be sure). If you have no glow plugs and temperatures are low, it is very possible the truck will not start, and it may not even ATTEMPT to start.
If you issue is a bad relay, the stock ford one can be expensive, ive seen threads floating around about aftermarket ones you can buy that are much,much cheaper and actually can help! look into that.
Try to avoid the ether, just plug it in if you need to use it before you get the problem addressed.
