I would start with the list of things above. I noticed on my slant, the 90 degree bend in the fuel line right before the carb looks like it is pinched. I'm replacing that soon but I know that is a problem when I give it gas too quick. I'd check the fuel filter too. I have lean burn on my truck. I can start mine first try every time with one pump of the throttle.... Till the high idle screw fell out. Slants are good engines. Wouldnt swap that engine for anything but maybe a diesel.
