What are the various causes of hesitation?

Just looking for some ideas for the neighboor kid. I have the idle set a bit low, he's trying to pass emissions today. I noted that one of the springs on the throttle linkage is worn, so I ghetto rigged it with a twist tie to give it a bit more tension. Any thoughts on what could cause it to hesitate on the take off? Just looking for some ideas.

How is the idle being adjusted? And is this on a Bird? Please tell me it's not by that screw on the throttle body...
