Fuel delivery is easy to check. Unhook the return line place it in a container, and run the pump for 40 seconds by removing the fuel pump relay and jumping pins 7 & 8. You should get 1 liter of fuel.

From what you describe, though, it sounds like either the cold start valve or the thermo switch that controls it, has gone south.
