What would be the minimum req. Vac lines on a 360?

Getting ready to install a 360 from a donor Wagoneer. This is going into an '85 G. Wagon. Emission laws are not a problem. This vehicle has a CAT and an EGR. What would be the simplest vacuum setup on a 360. All of the pulse air tubes and smog accessories have been removed. Basically I only need vacuum for the EGR and distributor advance. Should I use manifold vacuum through a Coolant Temp valve for the EGR and just run ported to the Dist? Where would a PCV valve go on the 360? I don't want to blow the seals out on the engine by not letting it breathe properly. Someone with 360 experience please give me the basics.

you'll need the distrib. advance.. and pcv.. and brake if you have power brakes..
as for the pcv.. you can run that straight to the carb.. if you have the stock intake.. you can bypass that stupid hard line on the passenger side.. with a stock carb.. it hooks to right behind the choke..

I have the following vacuum lines left on my 360.

power brakes
TH400 modulator
quadratrac shifter
charcoal canister (which might soon be removed)
pcv hooked to the pcv port on the throttle body

I have the non-egr edelbrock manifold too.
