When I step on the gas it pauses for about 1-1/2 sec then kicks in hard..sometimes it completely stalls out during this 'pause' when in 1st gear. And also it stalls just sitting at stop lights, any advice? what could lead to this?

-----------------------------
if i change the idle screw (more rpm's)..does it throw timing off?

Two things come to mind....possible accelerator pump in the carburetor bad, or the timing is not set right. Could be the vacuum advance can is bad, not giving the additional timing you need at idle.

I agree w/ Dave on the accerator pump, the diaframs do go bad, but what it seems like to me is your fuel level in the bowls, maybe a float is sticking or something.
