after my 87 22r sits overnight, it gets to be a real pain to start. it needs to crank for about 5 whole seconds before it'll sputter a little. once it starts to sputter if i turn the key and hit the gas just right it'll roars to life and runs fine. when the engine is a little warm it starts up no problem also. it's got 200k without a rebuild as far as i know and the last time i checked compression it was at about 150 on all cylinders. is that low enough to cause this rough starting or is it more likely linked to something else?

also FYI i just did an amateur head gasket replacement a couple weeks ago. while it seems like everything went fine with it since the truck runs better now, this starting problem did pop up since then so maybe i caused it?

every time, i usually give it about 3 pumps to the floor. it used to start right up when i did that. one thing that i haven't done is adjusted the ignition timing with a timing light (since i dont have one), but i did it by matchmark and by ear and it runs fine once its going so i'm not sure if that would cause this.

could a loose fuel line cause this by any chance? i haven't noticed any fuel leakage but all the hoses coming off the carb are somewhat old so who knows
