RE: [DML] Re: Need vacuum measurments

18.5" is a little low but still in the healthy range at idle. In your case, 
your car really isn't at idle, though. I suspect that your high idle is due 
to something physically holding the throttle open a little bit. Could be the 
cable is adjusted too tightly, or it might be the idle screw adjustment, or 
the adjustable linkage rod might need adjusting. (Or some combination of the 
above.) With the throttle open a bit you are not going to get a high vacuum.

Set up your idle correctly and I'm guessing you will see more vacuum 
afterwards. From what you've said so far there's no reason to suspect a 
vacuum leak at this point.
