Default 1993 honda civic almost starts but wont?

It cranks and cranks but just wont start, sometimes will start if we jump it. If we have it started and running, rhen shortly come back to start it, it will start up ok. It just dont want ro start after its been sitting a few hours. We changed spark plugs and fuel filter. Batter tested ok( even though the date on battery is from 2004?) When it was running,we disconnected the battery to check alternator,but car didnt die,so i guess alternator is ok, we can hear fuel pump engaging .....any other ideas?

I would say try another battery if you have another car or a friend that is willing to let you use there battery. If it still doesn't work, I will update my answer.
