then try cycling the fuel pump a few times, before cranking. if it
starts quickly, then it's a pressure leakdown problem.
If not, next morning, try flooring the accel as you crank. If it starts
quicker then, it's delivering too much fuel.
pump the accel a couple times as you crank, starts quicker then...
delivering too little.
As I said before, the FIRST thing to do is make sure the plugs are good
and fuel and air filter, as well.
