Well still at it

Took marcs advice on the ebp tube it seems to be flowing smooth it has a pulsing type flow when the sensor is removed and the engine is running .
Talked to the owner of the truck today and was told that when the block heater was plugged in it would run great first thing in the morn but if not plugged in it starts hard and runs real rough like it were to be running on two cylinders
Do you think maybe it is as tem p sensor problem and my scanner is not picking up a code :burnout Wouldnt it be nice if this truck could do a burnout in the morning like normal Thanks guys

Yes i tested the glow plug relay and the intake heater relay the glow plug relay is the one closest to the windshield.
I might have confused you it is starting on first time but when it starts running it is loping once temp is norm it is fine all day
This truck shouldnt need glow plugs were in fla. 95 degrees here.
Well im going to keep tinkering
Any suggestions let me know thanks guys have a good one!
