Cadilac Seville, 1976, 130,000 miles.

I'm having trouble starting, in the morning. Usually, just turn the key, now I have to pump it once, usually takes 3 tries. It'll idle rough at low RPM & takes about 3-5 minutes to warm up. If you try to give it gas, before it warms, it just dies. Once warm, it runs OK, a little rough and a slight decrease in power. Starts OK, but not like old.

Distributor has been replaced and the shop said the fuel pumps were OK. But they couldn't fix the problem. Any ideas?
