Long cranking time

Gotta a 96 F-350 PSD with 215,000 miles on it. Lately it has been cranking alot longer to get it started. Replaced ICP sensor and pig tail, GPR, PCM(due to moisture in it), fuel filter, and installed HPOP crossover hose. It use to fire after about 1 revolution and now it takes at least 10 seconds before it starts.

Welcome aboard! (i see the first post)

Check your hpop pressure via a computer or plumbing in a mechanical gauges in one of the oil ports on the head. might have a lazy hpop like my truck does. It will take a few turns of the motor for it to make the 500psi to start the truck

I will have to try that. It started right after we got a bunch of rain. Plus it's due for an oil change.

Oil change can do it to. These are sensitive trucks with oil

Mine started getting a little slow and after checking everything out I replaced my batteries and starter. The starter is what made the real difference. I got the gear-reduction starter from DB Electrical (online) and it fires right up every time. It really is worth every penny...

Got it figured out. All it needed was an oil change. Thanks for the help
