Ok, so pretty much the concensus that I have gathered, is that this would be due to the pressure from my FASS, and possibly having a damaged diaphram in my VP. The weird thing is, I ran the FASS for 3-4weeks without having any problem, then all of the sudden last week, it started getting really hard to start, it probably takes 3 seconds of cranking to turn over. How can I fix this? Will getting a lower pressure spring help? or can I replace the diaphram in my VP or is it time for me to buy a HotRod-44(that would suck I didn't want to do that until this fall). Anyways, thanks in advance guys.
