Angry '81 240D cranks but won't start !!

Having problems with my 240D. It cranks but won't start. I've replaced the glow plug relay w/ a manual one which is working fine, I've got fuel coming to the injectors, I pulled and cleaned the injectors, I replaced the starter. Needless to say I'm a little frustrated at this point. Any help would be greatly appreciated. DJ

Tested the glow plugs? Good ones will read about 0.7 ohms.
