When was the last full tune up? Plugs, wires, cap & rotor? Also, have you tried running some good fuel system cleaner (lie Techron)?

hello all,
patient is an 86 5k with approx. 145k on the clock. The symptoms: when
you step on the gas pedal there is no
power, it eventually will get up to speed but not after considerable
hesitation. The fuel pump was replaced a few years back but it has been
humming happily away for the past year or so. could this be vacuum
related or should i
start with the fuel system?
