"This engine always started immediatly,now it has to crank quite a lot before starting.
Fuel seems to be flowing away from the engine if I release compression and turn over the engine it takes a while before fuel will appear at one of the injectors once that happens the engine will start immediatly.I have checked for all usual things hoses,air,etc. Any Ideas? Thanks"

"Hi it sounds like you either have a leak in the fuel lines or clogged fine filter. From the information you give I'd suspect a leak, either fuel out or air in.

It should be traceable, if you can see no signs of a leak, try a little soapy water painted onto the various joints working back from the injectors, it may point to some air being pushed out.

I had a similar problem and it turned out to be the fine filter not fitted up snug (my problem I fitted the filter).
