There have been two discussions about this problem in the recent past relevant to what you can do. One explains how to clean the contacts in the ignition switch, which when dirty, fail to provide energy to the starter. The other is an account of resolving this problem by installing a solenoid in the system to provide a full 12 volts at the starter. I think Barry was involved in the solenoid discussion and a search on 'starter delay' should bring up the other thread.
