You can still check the vacuum, the miss will cause the needle to bounce but you'll still see where it would be normally.
I'm a bit confused. You responded to this post:

I bought a fuel pressure regulator at autozone and walla! I also took time to tune carb while I was at it.
With the following:
"I know this thread is old but i have the same problem
. Only thing is i have a mechanical fuel pump. Is that what you have as well. I didnt think one would need a fuel pressure regulator with a mechanical fuel pump."
What is the same problem you have? If it's not the carb dripping fuel, it must be the wet plugs?
There are a ton of things that can cause the plugs to foul w/fuel- carb, anything on the primary or secondary side of the ignition, fuel pressure to name a few.
Besides the fuel pressure, you need to rule out the ignition and carb float level, or blocked air bleeds, stuck power valve, internal leaks from warpage, bad well plugs, etc.
