Question 1977 300D Will Not Start

I have a 1977 300D that will not start. Sometimes it turns over a couple of times, then just stops. Also, the glow plug light does not come on. Sometimes it will not even do that. I replaced the glow plug system with a new pen style fast heating system complete with the controler. I have also replaced the starter, the wiring, battery, fuse box and fuses and the relay. However, nothing seems to correct the problem. Can any one suggest any thing else I can check or where I can go from here, to try and get it starting again? Thank you for your time.
