1992 F350-7.3 4wheel drive is hard to start after changing fuel filter and fuel pump. Why is it hard to start?

indicates fuel leak back and fuel pressure drop
check filter installation for seal not sitting properly, loose fuel line fitting , pump installed correctly (flow wise ), filter installed correctly (flow wise)
air getting in to fuel lines
the thing you are looking for is indicated by the initial hard start but when started runs ok ( good fuel to the engine eventually) and then by the fact that if the engine is allowed to sit for a long period the problem returns meaning that the fuel pressure is not being held
could even be a problem fuel pressure regulator allowing the fuel to bypass ( no pressure =hard starting) then gets enough pressure to run ok but allows that pressure to drain off over time

How to change a fuel filter

Not hard to do, but my experience has been that it is usually not necessary. On average I get about 250K miles out of my cars and typically never change the fuel filter. Now, if you know you have an issue with dirt or water in the fuel tank, that is different.

Car want start

The mechanic should check on the fuel filters , the spray nuzzle and the fuel lines . The fuel filters "the primary and the secondary filters".If these filters are dirty fuel are hard to enter because the dirt keeps on blocking the fuel to pass or go to the engine . The spray nuzzle if it is also dirty then the fuel also is hard to spray or to pass for engine compression. The fuel lines if the fuel lines are worn out or have leak then it should e replaced. These spare parts if they are been worn out or dirty they should be clean or some times be replaced . for good so that fuel will not spill too much on the car.For these problems can cause fuel leaks or engine problems it will result to engine lubrication.

1992 ford f150 duel tank problem, hard to start

The tanks have to be removed in order to change the fuel float sensors.

The hard to start issue could be related to a fuel filter that is full of sediment. The fuel filter could be in the engine compartment before the intake to the engine, but it is more likely an inline filter after the fuel pump on the frame rail. Change the filter and see if that help.
