As far as the brand's concerned, AutoLite are great glow plugs. I'm pretty sure AutoLite caters to Ford as AC Delco caters to GM.

I would use Motorcraft ZD-11's.

1 or 2 bad glow plugs will not cause a no start issue. Harder start as it gets way colder, but not a no start.

GPR hooked back up properly? All terminals tight?

Was the 30A fuse to the fuel bowl heater? If so, replace fuse again and unplug the heater...you really don't need it.

Have you pulled any codes?

POst back with results
