Well if I may throw a suggestion to you I would take a test light and see if you are getting power to the glow plugs and power into the valve cover. I replaced my glow plugs because I thought that was the prob. But I was getting power two 4 of my glowplugs.

block heaters work great, i got one on my 97 f-350 dump, we use it to plow up here in nh and on those weeks of 10* and such, just plug it in and when you want to start it it fires up like a summer day

they might have a aftermarket kit but 7.3 did not get a intake heater until late 99.i swapped my early model for a late model so i could get the intake heater they work so well it is amazing the differents it makes to shoot some warm air in the sucker were i live in colorado you have to have all the cold start aids you can get not only does it get cold but the elevation is so high you dont have much air.

you could make your own by drilling a hole the size of the intake heater and then just buy a replacement for a 99 to 03 then install the heater get you a relay to run it and hook it up to a switch on your dash then when you want to use it hit the button.
