The needle of the gage is steady, but low at idle? It might just be a question of where you are sampling the vacuum at. If it's from a ported vacuum source, it could behave the way you describe.

Otherwise, check for the initial timing being low, vacuum leaks, etc.

An undamped gage is better for diagnosing engines with- it allows the needle to move at the least provocation.
