I had the same problem on a gas converted car which I ran a few years ago.
The poor starting with long cranking times when trying to start up with gas was ultimately solved. The culprit was the spark plug gap.
When I reduced the gap to smaller than specified for petrol running, the start up was much improved.
I seems that it takes more energy from the spark to ignite a cylinder full of gas mixture than a cylinder full of petrol mixture.
It's an easy thing to try out. If there is no improvement then the fault is probably elsewhere.
