    I had the same thing with my 6BTA 370,s. Intake heaters had quit working. Hard start inthe morning, acted like a fuel issue. Repaired the intake heater system and added block heaters. End of problem, wasn't fuel at all. Hope this helps.

    Other possibility is leaky injectors. Does it smoke more at start up and idle than it used to?
