That is a very good timing link. It says it all.
My mild performer cam likes 14 and 21 at 3000rpm from the manifold. The Vacuum advance is adjusted for 8-10 more at whatever inches of vacuum the turns are set.
For slow/hard cranking .Check the wires to the starter if there is only one small gauge from the battery. Wrap 2 same gauge wires to the starter together. It puts the circut in parallel . Doubles the amps to starter but keeps the voltage the same.
Like 2 sets of jumper cables on a dead battery.

If by hard to start you mean the starter seems to drag, you need less advance as suggested by zildjian4life218. If you mean it turns over normally w/o any starter drag but takes a long time to start up, it may want a bit more timing, the choke may need adjustment, or your start-up procedure may need tweaking.

|zildjian4life218||If it was hard at 12* 18* will be worse. Go through the link that Cobalt posted it will help you setup everything like it should be.|

Try 10 degrees.
Undo the vac advance..

Thanks for the site. I tried what it suggested at 12 degrees, hard to start now so I think Ill try 18 and see what happens.
