Re: cold starting woes
My money is still on a suction side air leak. I had the same persistent problem for a while, at the time I had a priming bulb in the line to help fill the filter. Eventually came to the conclusion that the fittings on that bulb were the culprit, removed it and installed a Racor with a built-in priming pump. No issues since.
Worthwhile changing out the fuel line from tank and checking/redoing all the connections.
btw Where are you moored??
