Another no start 7.3 obs

Well it's been cold and the truck has been sitting and hasn't been starting. The glow plug relay was bad because the one larger post was broken and I could spin it around in the housing. So yesterday I replaced it along with changed the oil and fuel filter and air filter. Today I came back down the shop to work on her some more and it took me 3 or 4 different 8 to 10 second crank sessions before she fired up. While she was cranking and not firing I was getting white smoke out of the exhaust. Once she fired up she ran and idled like normal nothing funky there. Any ideas?

Thanks for reading guys.

Also right now it's in the mid to high 50s I think it was low 40s last night.

Have you checked the glowplug resistances? Also, make sure the harness connections at the valvecovers are in good shape (no evidence of melting/burning). Cheers!
