If you are using a carbureted ea81, then you will need a carb fuel pump. you can buy a generic aftermarket in-line for within 50 bucks at most auto stores.
using an mpfi pump with a carb will blow fuel past the needle valve.
If the car;s original harness is intact, and the distributor is connected to the coil, then the tachometer should be working, and the fuel pump should work by theory.
you are going to have to find a way to trick the mpfi ecu to see a crank signal, since it is expecting a signal from an optical distributor.
otherwise, the simplest approach is to tie it in to on with run. Perhaps you can retrofit the fuel pump control from the ea81
