1996 7.3 Turbo hard to start

I have a 1996 F-250 with the 7.3 Turbo. It was running fine and recently became hard to start. I replaced the fuel filter, Cam Sensor and it still does not want to crank, it takes a while. It almost acts like it is losing it's prime or won't hold it. The oil pressure is fine, the fuel pump was replaced less than a year ago, I checked the banjo fitting and it was still tight and there are no leaks on top of the motor. The batteries are strong, the cables are good and have a good connection, the starter is strong.
