No offense, but you don't sound like you have much experience setting the timing.
You should pick up a Chilton or Haynes manual to guide you through tune ups and repairs.
You will have to put a white mark on the harmonic balancer at 10 degrees BTDC. When you point your timing light at the bracket, the mark should line up with the straight edge of the bracket on the left side when you are facing the front of the engine.

I'll have to take a closer look and see where on the HB he actually placed the mark

Vacuum line goes through the fender wall, I have not yet identified the terminal end. What is it and what does it do?
