Running and idling problems

I have a 86 3.8 v6 with the TBI carb. And my problem or problems are that I can make the car run as long as the injectors are spraying fuel down the carb. But when I quit messing with the throttle and no longer has fuel going into it, it dies. It also found out it has a brand new intake fuel pump and filter. So I am lost as to what the problem(s) could be? I also took apart the carb and cleaned everytihng I could as is some pics so you can tell me what maybe hooked up wrong? I bought this car this way and in the little time I have owned it I can keep it running so any help is very great full!!!! Oh and BTW I have to pour fuel down the carb to get it to start.....
