I expect you've already checked other possible reasons for hard starting issues, but I had a problem a few years ago that turned out to be a poor connection at a battery terminal resulting in high resistance.  Just a thought before you start replacing things is to check connections and grounds.John O'Brien'61 bugeye (Lucy)'65 BJ8 (Madelyn)Sent from my Sprint Samsung Galaxy S10e.
