Hard to start???

Hey guys looking for a little help. I just installed the Oil cross over line and well, made a dumb move and pulled off the oil lines that goes to the oil pump. ( I think it the oil pump the lines go under the fuel filter)

I got eveything put back together and now its hard to start. I have to crank for awhile before it starts. Im wondering if there is a wrong way to put the oil lines back on? Can I have them backwards? Can anyone post a pic of the lines and where they go? I hope I have explained this well enough.

2 more things. Do you think ther is just a lot of air in the line?
If there is air, can I bleed it off?

Thanks for all the help. Its killing me that it dont start right up like it use to and it sounds a little different.

I took and drove the truck today and its still takes 10-15 seconds of cranking before it starts everytime. If it sits sometimes it takes longer. Once its running everything is fine.

Any suggestions? It use to start in 3-5 seconds.. Its bugging the crap out of me.
