First pull your plugs and read them. What color are they?

Second, find out where your timing is!!! Don't do ANYTHING until you find out where you're at right now...............my timing is 16 and 40

Mild cam? How mild? What duration? A little too much duration and its going to be a bit of a dog off idle with 8.5:1....................I am not sure of the cam, it was in the engine when I got it.my vacuum is high at 18 in gear, so it is probably mild.

Gears?..................343s

Your problem may be simply fixed by a stall converter!..................2200

How is this hesitation coming in? Do you notice it even with very light throttle, or when you give it a stab to half throttle it falls on its face for a minute?...................medium to hard stab.
