Default New fuel pump, turns over, has spark but will not start

I just bought a 1990 prelude 2.0S with the B20A3 engine with dual side-draft carburetors. Was told it ran when parked but didn't want to at the time. Put in new plugs, fuel filter and fuel pump. Finally started after holding pedal to floor for minimum 30 sec. Ran but not well. Able to drive it home (did not run well. Had to "two foot" all the way to keep it running. Managed 15 miles at 50 mph, 2 miles from home, car died and has not started since. This is my first Honda and all of my other vehicles have always been pre-emissions V8's. Can someone tell me what I am missing.
