1990 Cummins..HARD to start

Came on over 3 days.At first,it had to crank a few seconds to start---(( The OLD 1st Generation Cummins NEVER cranked more that one second & they were
running))
(acted like a fuel leak in the line & it had to crank a second to pick the fuel up.) NO leaks. Next day it was worse....next day-it took all day to get it started. It runs like a mad Bear once you get it running.
Injection pump ? or an easier( cheaper ) fix ???
Best price on a rebuild is $800 locally
