Glow Plugs

How do you check the glow plugs in the truck. I know check with a multi meter but what to what for acurate reading. and what should i see for results.

Also how do you check the glow plug relay, i replaced the old one with one from NAPA but the angle of the new one was diffrent from the old one and the posts were not labeled. so how do i know i hooked it up right and test it to make sure the new one works right.

THANKS ALLOT GUYS JUST GOT A LITTLE CONFUSED, ANDY

I check them with a test light. Connect to pos. side of battery touch each plug if they are good it should light up as you touch the tip(gotta remove valve covers and the glow plug cap)
