Whats the little spings do in the Hpop?

A few weeks ago I ordered the oil crossover line and installed it. At the time I had a small oil leak from the line comming out of the oil pump so I get new orings and took the hoses off and well the little springs came out too. i found them and I'm pretty sure I got them back in right. It took a few cranks to get it started and now for some reason over the last few weeks it acts like it still dont want to start right up quickly like it use to. Maybe its just me, but it like to crank over for 3-5 seconds before it starts. It runs fine and I have pulled several large load with it and havent had any problems. I was just wondering what those springs do and do I need to put them back in? I thinking about taking the hpop off and sending it to Joey at Terminator to have him do his modd job to see it that helps. Its a pain pulling those lines off again just to check the springs if they are not a problem. I have checked just about everything else out on the truck to fix the starting issue. just to clarify, it turns over really quick, and I have new batteries. Its just like it studders when its trying to start.
