Another somewhat hard start

Howdy folks,i'm fairly new to the site and a bit of a dufus on the power stroke.

got a 97 here,Ower complained fuel drip and prolonged start.I replaced the LP cuz it was leaking(PITA to get at though)replaced fuel hoses,cleaned out Fuel manager(lotsa crud in there)and that thingemedjingy bolted to the side of the FF.So far so good.Tested the GP's and controller,Is OK too.
Ran for 20 min to bleed the air out.

Fuel heater is burned out,did'nt think it matters.

This morning at startup,WTS lights up for 10 sec,still turns over for 15 sec before fire but runs on all 8 right away,no smoke.

Any suggestions what causes the long start? Inj?
.250 k on the mill.
