Having problems with starting first up in the morning. It is fine for the rest of the day, but first start in the morning takes quite a few attempts.

1992 TB42e.

Only started doing this in the last 2-3weeks.

Anyone have an insight as to what it may be?

Hard to start as in cranking or fuel supply ? Does the engine turn over fast but wont fire or does it crank slow and weak ?

Tried your electrics ie spark from leads to plugs, dizzy etc :D or fuel is getting through. Does it happen if you don't start it till later in the day when its warm?

Ya prob find wont be repairable but may have blocked pick up in tank or blocked in line filter you need to remove it and have a look at it have ya checked ya line pressure and filter as yet? i would check that before assuming it is fuel related. I paid 140 ish for a pump at bursons (trade price) dont know about genuine nissan pump would assume alot more than 140
