The red arrow indicates where I was thinking of placing a plastic "Tee" to connect a vacuum Guage. The hoses to the left go to the vacuum advance and the other goes to the manifold connection behind the carburetor. Is there a better place to connect the guage?

As long as the vacuum comes from the manifold then you are in the right place. I have seen some Fords have the distributor vacuum advance line come from the carburetor above the throttle plates which mean there will only be vacuum once the throttle is opened.

manafold v ported, and tight. Jasper's got it ! Above the throttle is ported, below is manafold. U want manafold if tuning by vac guage. 'S a good method for carb tuning. A good Ign tune would come 1st. AlSet? then go onto a carb tune.
