Next is do you have access to a scan tool to perform some basic tests? Do you get a wait to start light, have you tried starting with the truck plugged in, what happened when this started?

Starter fluid is a bad bad idea with our engines...

Does the tachometer move when you're cranking it over?

Lay off the ether. Your gonna tear something up. Fix the problem and it will start.

Its not an old IDI, if there is a problem you need to fix it first.

Check the res , replace the cps, if still no start, then get a scanner . Go from there. How cold outside there?
Cold enough to need the glow plugs? If so, then check for voltage there. But AFTER you check the res on top.
No oil = no run.

OK lets get this started on the right foot. Post up a nice description in paragraph format of all that you have done and all the symptoms that you have noticed and then we can probably help you out.
