With further reading, it is now sounding more like air in the fuel system. The stalling and bucking within a few seconds after starting, sounds like the IP is trying to reprime the system. It's unlikely to be noticed when warmed up as the fuel has been flowing and forced the air out.

Sources of air:
hand primer is notorious if it is the older, white version that unscrews.
fuel return lines at the injectors. Are you seeing any signs of fuel around the injectors?
main fuel filter seal but this usually results in fuel everywhere so it's doubtful
