acceleration problem

Have a 79 Cad with 425 cu in motor. Runs good except when starting from stopped position, may die if I don't gently accelerate. I 'm guessing accelerator pump, but would like to know for sure before buying another carburetor. I've changed distributor cap, rotor, plugs and plug wires, also fuel filter.

last I checked, you can replace the pump very quickly and for a couple bucks, unless your carb is evil, then don't listen to me.

Do a little test disconnect the vacuum hose at the distributor and plug it.Test drive it if it still does it carb related problem if it's ok replace the pickup coil in the dist.
