    My K5 has had trouble starting especially the first start of the day or after is has set for a period of 5 or so hours. This has been just recently, and I'm not sure where to start looking? Temperature doesn't matter. It has been hot or cold. Maybe a fuel filter?

    My first thought is to check the timing.If that's ok try the choke.

    Might check the fuel pump, mine started to take longer to start, shortly there after the pump went all together...

    IF THE ENGINE CRANKS OK, I WOULD CHECK CHOKE SETTING. IF ENGINE IS NOT TURNING OVER FAST ENOUGH ENGINE WILL NOT START AS FAST. MY 89 K5 WAS DOING THIS AND IT WAS THE BEARINGS IN THE STARTER. ALSO CHECK BATTERY CONDITION.
