Uh.. no.

To find if that is the problem, simply cycle the fuel pump a couple times
before cranking, by switching ign on and off.

the problem MAY be leaking injector or Fuel press regulator... but not
likely if it cranks long time after a couple days.

The OP (orig poster) needs to answer a few more questions such as whether
it does this after sitting LONG term and if there are ANY other changes
in how it drives.

This should have been raised on "alt.autos.ford" as it's an engine
problem... I'm cross-posting this reply there.

I based my opinion on the information given. You based yours on ...something
else.
But that's ok, this is usenet.
