lightning strikes twice

both 240's have lost their glow plug lights and evidently their glow plugs lighting.

its dark and snowing and i am exhausted so i am not pulling a carrameow and laying around cars tonite. tomorrow i am going to look for the source of the problem.

one will start with the 200 amp charger running and the key cranked all the way over. last nite i had to crank the key and hold it. today again with the 200 amp charger. have not introduced starting fluid yet but am ready to do so after disconnecting the gp's. the other just started acting up but needed a 200 amp jump thursday. tonite there was some compression but just no start.

first the glow plug fusible link.

what comes next? checking the ohms to the plugs?
