Default won't start

ofna 28 force won't start. ran good yesterday before the glo plug burned out.
I replaced plug then ran it, but it took forever to start. it's getting plenty of fuel but not sure on spark. is there a way to test the plug and the ignightor?

The way you can test that is stick the glow plug in the ignitor and look on the bottom of the glow plug, if it lights up bright orange and smokes then the plug is getting spark and so is your ignitor

Those glow plug starters that come with your car will get you cranked but they work alot better as a back up. I use the Super Hot-Shot 2. I charge it the night before and it lasts all day. $27.99@ Amain. The Racers Edge 4400mah looks like it would be another one to consider.
