Vacuum you are seeing is about 13inches low. either something is causing the timing to stay retarded or the timing chain is stretched beyond it's limit. Id check the MAP and throttle position sensors as they have influence over timing (and fuel mixture) and check the chain for stretch. Since you had the distributor out, it is also possible that you have installed it one tooth off...that also can ****** the timing.
