Fuel delivery

Hi everyone im new to this forum and the rinker family. I bought a great rinker fiesta vee 280 last year, Boat was and is spotless. The guy who owned it took very good care of it. I am now having a fuel delivery problem on my starboard motor. 

1. Its way harder to start after sitting a few days unlike the port motor that just fires right up.

2. It will not always run on its seperate tank on the starboard side. I have to switch the middle valve to run off the port tank. Could this be a vent problem, fuel pickup problem? 

3. I have a slight miss in one motor which i believe can be solved by cap, rotor and wires. Just want some other possibilities it could be. I only run rec fuel in the boat as well.

TIA for all your help.

    Welcome to the forum!  Have you ruled out bad fuel, or water in the fuel filter?  What kind of fuel filter do you have?  If it's a spin-on filter that looks like an oil filter, remove it and dump the contents into a clear container to see how much water is in there.

    I agree with LaRea, start with fuel.
