resurrecting 77 450 sel

hi everybody, Resurrecting a 77 450 sel…. Parked for about 8 years. So far, had tank cleaned and sealed professionally, new pump, fuel filter, blew out metal lines with carb cleaner and air, replaced cracked rubber lines, clean oil, checked all vacuum lines connected to engine, new spark plugs, and it runs terribly. It won’t accelerate when I put down the pedal or idle very well.
What is the next thing, step by step, that I can do to get it back on the road? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chris
