My 97 F250 Ford, 460 cubic inch engine (gasoline) is hard to start after setting as much as two hours?

Asked by Sep 28, 2016 at 03:28 PM about the 1997 Ford F-250 2 Dr XLT 4WD Extended Cab LB HD

Question type: General

Plugs, wires, dist. cap were changed.  These were all done once the problem
started.  Since started having problems starting even in hot weather 90
degrees or better when not started after 2 hours or more.  Runs perfect the
instant it starts even under load.  The fuel pump has been tested for volume
and pressure and holding pressure overnight.  Also has a new fuel filter.

Hard to start but the battery & starter are working fine in other words its not a slow engine spin issue.

No, it is not a spin issue. Engine spins rapidly. Engine seems to try to start. It hits and misses. Will only start the instant you let off the starter. We have owned this vehicle for many years, and it always started easily until recently. We have spent $975.00 to correct this problem, but we still have the problem.
