Nope, that was the problem. Solved
it and have been without issue ever since. For what it's worth, I'm in the Pacific Northwest
and the engine is a universal m25xp. You actually do need glow plugs under "normal circumstances" with this engine. If they are wired to house bank and house bank is dead....no Bueno.
Either way, in reference to the original post/question; if you have glow plugs, ensure they are wired to start battery
