Hard Starting

(1990 Ford Bronco)
in Paris, TX on February 18, 2011
I have a 1990 Ford Bronco with 126,000 actual miles. Recenlty overhauled engine. New fuel pump, filter etc. For a while now, even before the overhaul, the truck was difficult to start at times. Always difficult when the engine is cold, sometimes difficult when engine is warm. Think I may place excessive wear on my starter if I do not correct this problem.

Hard starting is due to either fuel pressure issues or an air intake issue. Could be a lack of spark too. If an air intake issue - is the engine getting too much or not enough air?

Thanks.

I pulled the vacuum line loose and it has fuel dripping from it. I guess that is the likely culprit.
