Transit Van 2.5di Engine Fault - Cold Start

1997 P Reg 2.5Di Ford Transit. Taking a while to turn engine over and when it does start, sounds like it is running on 3 cylinders for a few minutes until warmed up a little. I have just fitted a brand new set of Stanadyne injectors and it still does exactly the same - so it wasn't the injectors :-(

What could be up with my transit? starts really rough, knocking noise, white/blue/black Exhaust fumes, engine struggles at a fast idle as seen on video. Changed oil/fuel filter and checked fuel intake to injectors but have not yet checked injectors. Is this something I should do?

Cold start the transit and recover it.
we finnaly recover the shed from the field where she died 2 weeks ago.

My Transit T-Di project cold start in rainy Ireland. The Idle screw moves at the end due to the locknut being loose so I had to choke it with the EGR flap.
