Have your batteries tested. Then i would test the glow plug relay. That seems to be a common cold start issue people see.

Here is the 7.3 section of our tech files. Clay is right, i would definately test the glow plug relay. Info on testing along with other problems can be found in the link above

Please post this to a seperate thread and you will get more response. Hijacking another thread is not the way to do it.
I would answer your question but then i would be further hijacking.
Thanks for understanding.
