Default 87 accord won’t idle after fuel pump replacement

1987 Honda Accord 2.0 carb, bought for my daughter, in an attempt to
fix a rough running engine after 10 to 15 minutes of driving, both
fuel filters were replaced, the plugs were replaced, the wires were
replaced, the distributor cap and rotor were replaced, the coil was
replaced, next, I attempted to replace the fuel pump sock, but had to
replace the fuel pump and sock, in an error on my part, I dropped the
tank to replace it. Once back together, the engine will start, run on
high idle, then when it is to return to normal idle, the engine dies,
you can keep it running by keeping the accelerator depressed, but,
once you let it return to normal, the engine dies, you can restart the
engine, but, once again it dies. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

Dirty idle jet would be my first guess. Fixing that requires opening up
the carb. Basic carb cleaning on that car isn't too bad though: remove
the air breather, and you'll see (if memory serves) five or six
Philips-head bolts. Pull them out, and take loose the arms the push the
choke and acceleration pump, and just lift the top of carb off. From
there you can blow out the various jets and passageways, and make sure
the float bowl is clean while you're in there. Be careful blasting air
through though, one of the tubes toward the back of the carb body has a
bead valve that'll go flying if you don't cover it up first.

I have an 86 and I have the same problem. I have not replaced the O2
sensor, but I did rebuild the carburetor. the car runs great but will
not idle unless I set the idle speed way up. Any ideas? thanks!!
