    I fired up the K5 today and ran it for a while since the battery had to be charged. I noticed when I hit the gas it hesitated for a second then revved up like normal.

    Can it be as simple as adjusting the carb (Q Jet)?

    With the engine off and the air cleaner removed, look down the carb as you snap the linkage and you should see a streem of gas in both primary ventiries every time you snap the throtle. If not your accel pump is bad,
