Default Starting question

Hello all, I'm looking at buying a 91 9000 turbo. It has some problems that need to be fixed and thought this would be a good place to start. It needs a new DI cassette, which i plan on getting. With a good DI when you go to start it, it just cranks over, until you put your foot on the gas and hold it wide open and then after about a minute it will start. I noticed that i could also smell fuel after we shut it off, it almost seems like it is flooded or something. any thoughts? thanks

Lack of fuel pressure for the starting? Possibly a leak in the fuel line such that fuel pressure is lost before starting and then leaking under pressure when you've switched off?

Yep, probably something with the fuel. WHen is the last time fuel filter was changed? Connect a pressure gauge somewhere and read the pressure...
