....... the glow light has been staying on for a few seconds as well after the car starts...... bizarre.

Isn't that telling you a failing glow plug(s)? The service manual (for 1978 to 1980 system) says "If one or several pencil element glow plugs or lines are interrupted, the preglow indicator lamp will flash for aprox. 30 seconds after starting".
