TRUCK HAS A HARD TIME STARTING

1997 Ford F-250 • 225,000 miles

97 F250 super duty 4x4 5.8L 351 windsor. When the truck is cold, it cranks for about 6 seconds before it will turn over. And when it does finally turn over, it turns over rough and acts like it doesnt want to. Once the truck starts, its fine though. And it starts right up when the engine is warm. Any ideas? Just put on plugs, wires, and distributor cap and new battery terminals.

I would check the fuel pressure. Sounds like it is bleeding down over night
