With a Diesel there are additional parts that you have which affect the Cold start. There is a timer between the glowplugs and the Power relay on the start circuit. The timer cycles the glowplugs off/on for a variable time period. The more cold, the longer the cycle period.
Glowplugs go bad. You remove them like sparkplugs. Testing them is a matter of comparison. When power is applied they can melt, so test with care. Hook battery jump cables to each glowplug taking care to attach one lead to the base (avoiding the threads) and then briefly touch the top of the glowplug.
The quicker the plug glows, the better it is. The darker, the worse it is.
But the timer must provide the juice to the glowplug for it to work. A bad timer will not properly heat the glowplugs. The timer must get its' power from the Power relay. So you can have acceptable glowplugs, and a bad timer.
Ultimately once the engine cylinders have run hot enough, a Diesel fires by compression and not by spark as a gas motor does. That is why once you have a hot diesel, it will start freely.
It is why I explained the needs of a Cold Diesel engine and I hope this helps you.

Why has my transit tipper lost its power, just had a brand new cylinder put in and the fuel injectors refurbished, but know it seems to have no power what so ever, what could cause this ?


I suspect that the valve/injector timing is out a tooth. You are right to be suspicious because if it was running ok before work but not after then it is something that has been done or not done . There may be air in the fuel system from a line leak that is preventing full pressure to the injector element.

Mine loses all power and stops, and the curly light comes on, and I switch it off and start it again. It works every time but is bloody dangerous on a hill when passing someone and towing a trailer.
