Do you have a voltmeter to test the voltage of the battery ? Or a battery charger to test battery voltage? With glow plug not lighting up and no starter. you have lost voltage to the keyswitch. If battery is good, check the cables, negative at battery and at frame , and posiitve at the battery and at the starter solenoid.
