Now, for what it's worth, I've seen the same thing result from the 
float level being a little too low.    This sometimes results from 
attempts to overcome the dripping turbo carb issue via lowering the 
float level slightly.   It's been my experience that even a little 
bit of too-low float level on the Carter Y seems to cause hesitation.

...not to say this is the problem with this particular instance, but 
I've seen this become an issue.
