You need 125amp hour 12v battery, two is best, when you try to start the engine do you use the pre heat .thermostart) ? If not then this might be why starting is getting harder. Let me know if you don't know how to use it, also holding the clutch pedal down when turning it over can help. Old thick oil can be a problem too but nothing beats a decent battery or two
