It was probably the fuel pump clicking it more common than you think. Possible causes wiring harness corroded or water dripping down the windshield then on top of genny switch.

Glow plugs don't "click". They are form of a heater, only tiny sized. Almost like a spark plug. As Rooster suggested, it's more than likely your fuel pump. I've heard of water or moisture infiltrating some of the wiring and causing some shorts.
