Why does the engine not run normally after starting?

(1990 Honda Accord)
1985 Honda Accord 4-door sedan, 1.8 liter engine with CARBURETOR, 4-speed automatic. The engine starts normally but then requires that I vigorously pump the accelerator pedal to keep in running. It will occasionally start and run normally. Both fuel filters were replaced recently along with the distributor cap and rotor. No noises, leakes or problems otherwise. I need help determining how to troubleshoot the problem. Which components should I look at first?
What seems to make the problem better or worse? Hard to say. The problem was intermittent at first but has progressed to nearly all of the time now.
How long have you had this problem? Couple of months.

I would look at the carburetor next. If it hasn't been replaced, rebuild or cleaned in a long time I'd start by a good cleaning and inspection.
