The PCV is fine where you have it. The hesitation is likely either the vacuum advance falling out (if connected to manifold vacuum and supplying more than 10 degrees of vacuum advance) or the accelerator pump circuit is not supplying enough pump shot, or the pump shot duration is insufficient. Or a combination of these.

Different size shooters are available or drill yours. If you drill too big- which you may do if searching for the "perfect" size- solder them shut and re drill to the correct size as determined by testing. Then if you want, you might be able to buy a new shooter of the correct size or get one as close to the right size and drill it. This is because sometimes getting a good spray pattern from a soldered over and re drilled shooter is hard.

And again- you have to get a pump shot the instant the throttle linkage moves. You can buy an accelerator pump piston assembly separately, same page as above.
