Question 92 z28 5.7 is busting out bad

i just recently purchased a lovely 92 z 28 5.7. i noticed a slight hesitation in the accelaration. i came to a complete stop and accelarated fairly hard. the engine spit and sputtered not wanting to go. every since that it hasnt hardly run. you can smell fuel. if you barely give it gas it MIGHT go. someone please help i have no clue as to where to start.

if your not getting a check engine light, it is nothing to do with the electrical operation of the motor....

I still say check the cat...
