Engine Vaccum readings

What vacuum should a good Model A engine pull at say 40 miles per hour.
At Idle my engine pulls a steady 18. At 35 - 40 it drops to above 10.

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.
