welcome to SDD

NAPA relay 109 is an automotive realy, basically the same thing as the OEM unit.

The Stancor relay is a 'generic' relay, also rated for much more capacity. Guzzle's page is good on the upgrade. I will be doing that this spring. Its not application specific.

You may also want to take a look at Dieselmann's page on diagnosing hard starts-

PowerStroke diagnosis

other things to check would be oil level (it won't run if the oil is too low),

IIRC, you can run a scan or manually check the resistance of the glow plugs to see if any are bad.

I would also check battery and ground cables to make sure that you have good connections.
