What I find confusing is that if the fuel pressure is really OK then why the hard cranking? You need compression, gas and spark for the engine to start. One of the three has to be missing. Have you done a compression test on a cold engine? If the compression is good (this will rule out valves and rings) then that leaves gas and spark. If the gas pressure is there - how is your electrical? Do you have a bad spark plug wire? check ohmage on each. Check your distributor cap and rotor for signs of arcing. Are you using platinum plugs - if so - change back to recommended copper ones.While you are at it check your plugs for signs of fouling. By process of elimination the problem will be fixed. The worst case I am thinking of is the fuel distributor or associated component.
