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

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.
