David - I lean towards both 2 and 3 being culprits. I need to borrow a friend's tach meter to see what the idle speed actually is. My guess is that it is high. High enough that it is pulling a vacuum. If I disconnect the vacuum line to the distributor I can feel a vacuum in the line if I put my finger on it.

The engine was also not warm at all. I literally started the car, hooked up the timing gun and checked the timing. It was on for maybe 1 minute, then it was time to get ready for work. So the choke was not open and engine was probably on high idle.
