I believe you may have connected the distributor to the manifold vacuum port. You probably want to be on the ported port. Easy enough to check which is which.

As an aside, I have found that in some instances the engine will run smoother and cooler if the distributor vacuum is connected to the manifold port.

With the distributor vacuum line disconnected and plugged, set the timing and engine idle speed and carb mixture to spec. Connect the vacuum line and reset engine idle speed and carb mixture.

This will give you full vacuum advance at idle which will result in a cooler running engine at idle speed. This may also result in a smoother running engine in the transition off of idle.

Worth a try.
