Now won't start even plugged in.

I have read all previous posts on this and it hasn't helped.
It is a 2000 F-350 with 148,000. It always has to be plugged in to start it even if it is 100 degrees outside. I took it to Ford who told me I need a new motor. I had it rebuilt with new plugs, turbo, injector o-rings and IDM. The day the mech put in the rebuild it wouldn't start unless plugged in for 2 hours.
Now that is down to 10F out, it won't start at all even plugged in all day. I gave it a bunch of ether and it finally fired. Any ideas?

Cool

My initial thought would be the glow plug relay. They can go out at any time and easy to check to see if they are getting power to the glowplugs.

My mech obsessed over this because it wouldn't start for him. He checked all voltages and double checked new glow plugs. They are working for sure. Glowing red. Would the under valve harness cause this? Do Injectors need to be heated if they aren't working properly? Fuel Pump?
