Missing Low Power/UVCH

On my 95, It developed what sounds like a miss and very low power. On the 1/3 UVCH plug it has a burnt plug/wire for Glow Plug 1. I removed the valve cover and everything looks normal. While its running, if I unplug the 1/3 plug, the sound of the engine doesnt change.

I will pick up up a new UVCH/gasket tomorrow, Anything else or any other ideas?

If you have the valve cover of anyway, you could unclip each injector one at a time and see if it made any difference. Chances are if you have a burned glow plug wire, you probably have under valve cover wiring harness issues you can't see. An old trick I learned from gassers check your wiring on a dark night with no lights and your engine running. If you have wiring issues you can usually tell.
