k, the problem doesn't sound charger related, as your vacuum readings aren't correct.
check CO pot for leaks
check all vacuum lines
check the boost tube under the battery, as they are leak prone.


i am unfamiliar with the boost tube UNDER the battery?
would it be in the same location because of my swap?
