Default 94 civic ex valve adjustment?

I have a 94 civic EX with a stock D16z6. I adjusted the valves to the spec, Intake 8, ex 11. The first time with a "slight" drag on the feeler gauge. The car hesitated after warming up while accelerating. I adjusted them again to the same specs but with more of a drag. Same problem but not a severe. When I went to adjust them the 3rd time (to minimal specs) I noticed the PCV Valve hose was cracked, and I was HOPING that was the problem. Replaced the hose and didn't change it. I am going to adjust them one more time to the minimal specs, yes I have it to TDC for each cylinder. Any ideas or tips on what I may be doing wrong? What is the cause of this hesitation (usually under load or while accelerating). Also if i speed up slowly, it does not do it... Any ideas?

Sounds like the gaps for your valve clearances are good. Did you do anything else to the engine along with the valve adjustment? Timing belt or anything?
