too much CRANKING

my truck has always started up fastest when shes cold but when its been sitting for half hour or less ive always had to sit there and turn it over 6-8 times before i get her to start, but recently over the past couple weeks shes been getting alot worse now its always 7-8 times, usually a little faster when the engine is colder, but yeah i dont get it, i just replaced one of the batteries and the starter sounds great im thinking bout replacing glowplugs but that doesn't explain harder starts while warm? everything seems fine no fuel leaks im almost to 130k can anyone tell me what to look for here?

alright i checked the plug there was a very small amount of oil residue on the male end and there wasn't any extra floating in the female side, so how much does it take to call it bad? when i tried starting with it unplugged o wow she didn't like it at all, took alot of turnovers to start and when it finally did, it was just running like all out crap hopefully thats not a bad thing? anyway gonna keep researching thanks for the help guys and ya im def gonna buy another battery, there goes my savings for a fuel pressure gauge haha

o wow that thread said the sensor was on the "left" head so naturally i looked at the left head from the front of the truck after i looked at a picture in another thread i realized i was on the wrong side haha turns out i pulled the plug on some harness going into the left (or right) head valve cover, anyway pulled the right plug this time everything looks perfect and the motor still starts exactly the same with it unplugged sooo maybe its the fuel pump i dunno i wish i had some way to read my fuel pressure anybody in northeastern oregon with a diagnostic comp
