The heater usually takes 3-4 hours to warm up sufficiently. Probably just didn't wait long enough maybe.

It should crank and run without plugging in if the glowplug system is working right and the compression isn't too low.

Dont forget that ford had a recall of some of the CPS'. You can go to the Ford recall and see if it is covered. Might save you some money.
