    Check your float level in the carb first off (small window on the drivers side of the carb). If that is within specs, should be centered in the window, then it could be any number of things. Try holding the engine running w/ the throttle (not high RPM's, 3 grand should do) for a little while and then letting off the gas. I have an 85 CRX thats carbed and sometimes she just doesn't want to run when she's cold, its a quirk of these cars (the carbies).

    Just so you know, the carbed head has 16 valves, a perk of the CVCC. There is actually a small aux. valve on ever cylinder that allows a very rich mixture to enter near the spark plug while the main intake valve gives up a very lean mixture. This allows a more complete combustion and the added fuel mileage of this system. You may have messed up your aux. valves as well, which would cause an overall lean condition in the motor, and keep it from running.
