I have a '64 Spyder with the turbo engine. It runs well, starts

The car does stumble or hesitate after I back off the throttle,
then step on it again. It happens whether I'm in town driving
slowly, let off on the gas to slow down a little, then ease into

There's just a little lag between the time I step on the gas
again and the time the car starts to accelerate again. It makes
the car jerk a little everytime it happens. I've gotten used to
it, so I know it's going to happen.
