1997 Mustang Electrical trouble and hard starting

Alright I have been having a couple of differnt issues. None of them major. yet. After i Have driven the car enought o get the temp guage warm, Turn it off and try and restart it it takes forever to start. About 3-4 seconds of cranking. It will do this periodicly whent he engine is cold. I have found no connection with the weather. I have Checked my battery, alternator, and starter. All check out. I had them checked out at the Ford Dealership, Autozone, AAA, and Advance Auto. All Say the same thing. The only thing is the alternator guage seems a little high. I included of picture of it. The spark plugs are new and properly gapped and so are the wires, PCV Valve, Air filter, Fuel Filter. I have had all the fluids flushed. After i change the oil its almost clear on the dipstick. I have no clue what else could be wrong. Any Ideas
