    I dunno about that being a good thing, possible ignition problem as well.

    doubt it... how long has it been since you repplaced the dizzy cap and the rotor? plugs and wires too... 75% of the time it's gonna be an electrical problem (generally spaeking) it very well could be the fuel cause it seems like there's a lapse in fuel delivery if it takes that much to start. idk but could it possibly be a bad fuel pump too?

    do you let the fuel pump prime before you try to crank it?

    agreed...sounds like lack of fuel on start up....try unhooking the fuel regulator hose and see if it starts easier with it off.
