I assume you arent touching the accel while you attempt.
Troubleshoot:
1. Turn ign on and off a couple times before you crank engine, if it changes symptom, then it's your fuel pump, or fuel pressure regulator (fpr).
pull the tube from fpr to intake, does it have gas in it?
2. after that, try pumping gas twice before starting. Start quick? - vacuum leak or bad fpr (assuming runs okay when started, not fuel pump)
3. No change or takes longer, then try flooring accel while cranking. - starts faster, fpr or leaky injectors
