extended crank after sitting for an extended period of time.

by Christopher DiFalco

76 corvette 350, rochester q-jet. i don't think i have a fuel leak, with 3 pumps of gas pedal cold starts would crank for 8-9 revs before it caught. Once its has started and you turn it if its a tap of the key and it fires right up. haven't dug too deep into diag. checked the timing, checked the carb adjustments. I am looking for an easy starting corvette...
