Humidity can get in to the distributor,and cause cranking problem,s,check the distributor,for moisture.

Sounds like old ignition wiring. They have a graphite/carbon core and when the rubber gets old it gets a tad porous and the moisture just fouls it up.

disttibuter,plug wires,might has well change the pugs also.

thanks for the answers fellows.yep,i thought of all those distributor,plugs etc.its a daily driven not many miles.i changed dist cap,rotor,wires,and plugs less than 3yrs ago. I guess i'll have to change it out.
