The EGR valve should be connected to the EGR solenoid and then to the intake manifold.

I always prefer to have my distributor vacuum advance plumbed to a direct manifold vacuum source.

Base timing... I would adjust base timing for the maximum engine vacuum at hot idle in gear. Do this with the vacuum advance disconnected. It should be somewhere around 8-10 degrees advanced.
