Default help h22/h2b wont start up

I just finish putting my motor back in my car. The car won't start or crank. Only a click sound from the starter but I test the starter is still good. I push start the car it will start but it die when I let go the gas. Please help

Make sure that all the engine grounds are in place. As for the clicking with the starter make sure the spade connector is tight on the starter connection. If it still clicks pull it apart and clean it if you don't have another starter handy.

I pulled this link from hondata, make sure the idle control routing is correct. Adjust accordingly if not... Hope this helps.
