Send a PM to Val (warriormama) she is from Osoyoos as well. She may be able to point you in the right direction.

'95 F250 4x4 7.3...I had it scanned and the codes were not critical...I have replaced the glo-plugs...GPR...injector o-rings...batteries...starter...fresh oil...fuel filter...I bought this truck in Oct...it ran good when warmed up...but needed help(ether) to start after sitting for more than 8 hours...fortunately the GPR was NFG so the PO didn't hurt the motor(I hope) and has since been fixed...no ether now...but still no start...I've cranked this motor forever over the past 2 days...no smoke...no fire...when it was running it ran solid...so I think its just something minor....as opposed to a rebuild situation...any and all help appreciated...I'm gonna post this then head to the shop and replace the NFG block heater...

Well if ya replaced the glow plugs, and the gpr, you kinda took my suggestions!

Have you tested them though, to make sure the right current is getting there? I dont know what the specific values are, but if there is a wire(s) that maybe are busted or whatever, then that may be a reason that they arent working.

In the last few days have you tried at all with ether? Like Im wondering if fuel is for sure getting to the injectors, can you hear your fuel pump going at all?
