So im in the process of minimizing under the hood, getting down to bare bones necessity. Im at removing and blocking off the egr, and deciding on where to get my hei distributor vacuum from.. either this old egr vacuum solenoid, or should i get vacuum from the manifold/carburetor?
This is what it looks like, I'm not even sure its working or doing anything...and I dont see it in a lot of chevy 250 engine pictures, I see the vacuum line from the distributor going to manifold or carburetor.

Not sure what to do with the two wires, maybe just clip and heat shrink or connect??

I won't touch the ported versus non-ported vacuum sourcing debate with a 10-ft pole but...... in regards to "minimizing under hood" I would reconsider removing your EGR in my humble opinion. EGR only operates at part throttle after your engine is warmed up somewhat and does not affect idle or wide open throttle performance. Besides reducing NOx, EGR offers several other advantages you should research.
