The double compression fitting you have has been compressed and you won't be able to re-use.
You need the Sleeve number 22008 and fitting 16001 for $2 a piece.

New ones are available here online; http://www.fastfittings.com/search?searchwords=22008&searchsmall_5487389=Search

Tough to get an old mechanical distributor to do what you want, but not impossible.
The car will run best on full manifold vacuum for sure, so sounds like you have two issues.
One is to limit that vacuum advance at idle with a limiter plate like Summit sales Crane Vacuum Timing Limiter Plates 99619-1.
You could dial in the limiter to 10~12 degrees at idle.
Once that is worked out you asked about all in advance rpm, and that is dependent on what the motor likes.
Some people suggest lug the motor at rpm to see if it pings, but how is the seat of the pants feel during acceleration?
If its not pinging I would leave that alone. There are very few spring types to select from, and I haven't found one that is just right.
But I haven't tried to make springs yet and that is the only way I know of to dial in the curve.

Any shots of the side of the car I'd like to see what those side exhausts look like on the car.

Jon;
 The plenum seems to look cut-out on the under-hood picture?

I've never seen a source for the block fitting. They come up occasionally on ebay.

The plastic line will work with a nut replacement, but it needs the internal line sleeve per the manufacturer.
The nut/cone pinches down on the line.

Kevin/Lloyd;
 Can't reuse the 1/8" double compression threaded sleeve nut 5/16-24, once the cone end is compressed its toast. However the block fitting is unique and not available, it is reusable.

Sleeve number 22008 and fitting 16001 for $2 a piece.

Ok
Here's what I found:
The male style fitting is called a 1/8" double compression fitting. Weatherhead, Edelmann, and Everco all offer replacements for these special fittings.
According to the manufacturer when using plastic tubing use internal tube support, that is so the compression sleeve squeezes tight against line and then internal tube support for a leak free seal. I'll post additional pictures when I get all the parts together. $1.15 a piece on line for the 1/8" double compression fitting.
