Really it's entirely down to you.

I see no reason not to have vacuum though. And up to you whether mechanical or electric is preferred.

Certainly no need to run as rich as 11 flat though

And you dont say whether 5psi or 50psi.

If it was going bad and causing misalignment then yes.

But that goes back to alignment.

Either that or tension problems.
