Slow start

I've got a 95 f250 and I had it off the road after I had a small wreck and had to replace some of the front drivetrain. Well I got it almost ready to go and when I go to start it now it wants to talk almost double the time to start that it used to. When I wrecked it, the front driveshaft crushed the lower part of the oil filter so it poured out all the oil it had in it. When it finally cranks, it runs fine, a slight stronger lope than before, but nothing too crazy, could very well be the fresh oil(it did it a lil last time too). Any help would be greatly appreciated as I'm not a big fan of drivin my dad's f150

^^^^^ Trauma from the crash might've killed one cell in one of the batteries. Remember to isolate the batteries from one another when testing them.

Both batteries are good, which is good cause they're 3 month old yellow top Optimas. I starts strong, not like its killing the battery just like a gas engine would thats not gettin fuel right away. starter is strong and turns over without a problem(less than a year old). Is there any possibility of the mechanical fuel pump being the problem(its as new as the starter)?

any suggestions??? It turns over fast so its not an issue of power, the glow plugs are working and even at good temp it takes a lot longer to crank. Runs fine and everything just takes way to long to start.

Checked the IPR for oil, and it was good. checked all the plugs on my UVC harness and the 2 on passenger side were filled with oil and one was loose as hell, went ahead and cleaned the oil out of them while I was at it. So I ordered those in, and the day they came in the truck cleared up on start and running just fine. I'm thinking it was either stagnant oil in the injectors/hpop over the time it was down, or possibly the UVC harness connection was a partial cause.

Thanks again for all the help
