Hard Start...Still

Another potential issue is the loss of fuel pressure due to venting of fumes through the rubber hoses around the tank....
These hoses are similar to the braided vacuum hoses in the engine compartment.
After replacing the approximate total 12 inches of hoses around the fuel pump which had badly deteriorated ends, my hard starting issue improved considerably.
I have some digital pix on my home machine, and will try to post them soon.
