if it starts and runs with starting fluid or with the block heater plugged in for two-three hours, the glow plug circuit is not working. do you get power to glow plugs when the wait to start light is on?
what brand glow plugs did you put in it? these engines only like motorcraft glow plugs, most other brands will burn out as soon as power is applied to them, especially the autolites most parts houses sell .

If you want the moral high ground, make sure you're not standing on a hill of horsecrap.
