My old 90 S-10, 4.3 litre, It would crank and crank untill the cows come home befor starting,
I checked fuel pump, actualy replaced it, did an injector flush, spark plugs, cap rotor wires,
this thing just would not start, eventually the starter fried and I had to replace it too.
I was so d#### frustrated that I replaced the nearly new ( or so I thought ) fuel filter.
It was plugged solid, never had a problem with excessive cranking again. I just changed the filter in my daughters 89 Z24, and it was partialy plugged, real hard to blow through, and it is just over 1 year old.
