95 7.3 powerstroke relay/starter issues

Hi my name is Jenn and I have a 95 7.3 f250 turbo diesel. I have read alot of posts about the 7.3 relay issues so I just tryed to replace my relay, and when I put the new one(a napa Part) in, my starter wont turn over so I then put back in my old relay and the starter works. I am at a loss as to what to do. I tryed using my voltmeter to check across for power and am not sure why I get 12.7v across between the two large posts on both of the relays, If it is a relay shouldn't it only switch on when the key is on to the wait light? Any help would be appreciated.

The only relay I can see is on the passenger side, to the rear of the battery, beside the antifreeze resevour, mounted to the side of the chassie but it only has 3 posts? Am I just not seeing the glowplug relay?

Yeah thats your starting relay for the starting circuit. The glow plug relay should be where I said it was near the fuel filter housing. Give it a look one more time should be there
