Here's a pic of a 64, but how should things look on my 65 283 2V with PG, power brakes and vacuum gauge to be factory correct thanks.

TimmyG65 pointed out that this detail is covered on page 163 of the assembly manual for 65.
That page hadn't caught my eye before, but I see that for my car, the distributor hose is a straight run with the vacuum gauge hose teeing into it unlike the arrangement in the 64 pic.
My existing setup has the vacuum gauge tee'd into the modulator line instead of the vacuum advance line.
I also see I'm missing the retaining clip for the vacuum advance hard line, and the original black tee since I just have a generic Dorman "Help!" brand white tee.
Good news is that the intake manifold tee is correct.

Here's the corrected hookup.
I extended the vacuum gauge hose with a 5/32" black plastic coupling visible at the pcv hose.
5/32 is the correct hose size, but the gauge hose is not an original one and I found it to be short.
It's connected to the 5/32 distributor hose with a 5/32 black plastic tee.
Even though the hose sizes specified are 5/32, the assembly manual calls for a 3/16 tee, but I found the brand of 5/32 connectors I used to fit snug.
7/32 is the correct size hose from the manifold tee to the modulator hard line.
It's long enough to keep the hard line where it drops down from touching the distributor hose.
I also bent up the distributor hard line up a little to keep the hose from touching the intake seeing as my clip for the hard line is missing.
I noticed there's no bulb on the end of the distributor hard line, but rather a slightly tapered down in size length at the tip to fit the 5/32 hose.
