Engine Vaccum readings

What vacuum should a good Model A engine pull at say 40 miles per hour.

Re: Charging test question...

You can also bench test it by spinning it with a variable speed drill. You will feel it load up the field and with a voltmeter you will can see the "voltage" out put.

Hot hot is too hot

New engine, 80 degree day, running 50 - 55 up a hill, reached 200 degree's, on the level at 48 - 55 seems to run between 180 and 190.

Is this normal. I was pushing it to make it work.
