Default 93 h22a starting issue

I have 93 h22a swapped into my Civic I realize this section is for preludes but I figured I would ask you guys since you deal with the h22 on a daily basis. Anyway I'm at my wit's end my car doesn't want to start it's like the colder it is out the more it has to crank, some times it takes like 20 minutes to get it to start but after it runs and gets warmed up you can shut it off and it will crank once or twice then start every time has anyone else had this issue?

Ive had only crank issues 4 times

1) distributor cap was collecting moisture - newd cap, wires, plugs and rotator

2) fuel map/tune was bad

3) valve adjustment was off

4) ignition switch was bad

Timing could be one issue more but you dont say did this started suddenly or after something. And we don't know your maintenence history or how you did your swap...
