I had same problem,carb. manufacturer had me go up one size on squirters at a time until it stopped hesitation(change all squirters).It worked, but I had to go to a thermostat(195 degrees) to get temp up.Make sure you use a good thermostat or you will have problems there too.

you may want to check the powere valves. if there is not enough engine vacuum to operate the valves correctly you can experience the effects you have discribed.

do you run a fuel regulator ... I know with Alky you have to have a regulator or it will flood and make it run rich..You only need about 6 pounds of pressure..

I would put power valves back in, I dont think very many block them off unless drag racing.Make sure that you jet up ,I think they say 10-15 jet sizes,not sure though.Also make sure that you get alky power valves.

All sounds good and logical. We took the blocker out of the front and put in a 45 power valve. blocker still in back. Drilled out squirters and it seems best so far. Not great yet though. Still seems a bit fat on the front 1/2. Will it get better when it warms up? Might play a bit more tomorrow with it. Think you all got me on the right track. Still listening though so don't be bashfull.
Thanks.
