76 930 smooth at idle. hesitation when accelerating

Hello everyone this looks like a great forum and I am hoping someone here can help me with my issue.

I have a 1976 Porsche 930 Turbo, 65K miles. The car is generally kept in storage and started and driven once every month or so. We recently had to get it out for smog check here in CA (which luckily it did pass today) and before hand we changed the oil and fuel filter and ran a few tanks of gas through it.

The issue is severe hesitation upon initial acceleration. At idle the car runs great and once it gets past the stumbling the car runs smooth. It is most noticeable in the lower gears. At some point years ago something may have been adjusted to help pass smog but we are not sure what that was. Car does not have a catalytic converter.

Thanks very much for any input.
