During cranking, the fuel pump is supplied by the ignition key switch. After cranking, it is supplied by the relay that needs oil pressure to supply the pump.

there is a sensor on your oil filter housing that measure oil pressure after rotating the engine with the starter.. when that pressure is high enough the oil pump kicks in.. This is to insure enough oil pressure to the cams on start up..If your car seats a lot , it will take a few seconds of cranking for the fuel pump to get the signal(ground).. Having a strong starter is imperative ..
The reason why it takes a bit longer to start a car that hasn't been driven for a while is that the carbs must be primed. It's best to turn on ignition, listen to the pump supplying fuel to the carbs, kick down the pedal a few times to open the throttle valves and start to crank after a few seconds.
