What did the plugs look like when you checked them?

I only pulled a couple on each side they were clean and no wear at all it runs great just hard to start when its cold

You should pull them all. Chances are you have a few that are dirty. That makes them hard to fire when cold but can get better as it warms up.

I will do that this week you may be right

Make sure the gaps are correct also, this can make a big difference on cold starts.
