Originally...or at some point today? I'm using that intake manifold port with the vacuum gauge, but am using the intake manifold port that was on the vehicle when I got it. The brake booster hose was connected to that port. Here is a picture:Did you connect that brake booster hose to the intake manifold?
On the top front of the carb are 3 vac fittings, the center one goes to choke breaker (as pictured). The other 2 should be capped off.I'm pretty sure I have a vacuum retard dizzy so I removed the line to that per Jim's instructions earlier in this thread. And capped the other ports on the carb. No change...it idles great, but I can’t get about about 1500 rpm without it wanting to crap out. If I try to add throttle quickly, it sucks air and almost dies. Timing is about 10-11btdc and vacuum is 18ish then after adding some throttle goes to 20ish.

Thanks @FJ40Jim . I am pretty sure earlier in the thread you told me mine was a retard dizzy, so I have the valve cover carb ports capped off also.On the top front of the carb are 3 vac fittings, the center one goes to choke breaker (as pictured). The other 2 should be capped off.
The loop of hose under carb is OK.
The only fitting needed on the valve cover side of carb is the forwardmost, which is ported vacuum for a vacuum advance dissy ( if equipped).
@Cromagnon ...the electrical was a PITA! You can't see trons...but getting this thing to run has definitely had it's frustrating moments. I still need to do the reverse lights...so I'm sure you'll be hearing from me.I remember a time when you thought the electrical system was a PITA.
