    Ive been running a Manual Choke darn near from the get go.
    I would try pulling the intake boot loose and Hand Choking it first.

    One thing tho, you have moved to a State South, But Florida Isn't a Southern state, Florida at one time was a piece of New York or something and wisely floated south and attached itself down there.

    She gets right up on the rear valance. 
     

    Even taking some bite out of the car she will still stand right up on 9.5" tires.

    Nah the Aluminum under the Rubber is Not cracked, its very solid one piece Aluminum under the Rubber.
    I couldn't crack it even if I hit it with a hammer on the bench. Even a Nitrous explosion will only blow the carb back off the spigot its claimed to
    There is nothing internal or external to "burn" a hole thru it. its solid behind it.
    Probably your Socket grabbed that little blem and ripped a little piece off thats all
    That hole you see is the vacuum port in from of the stud.
    Best I can figure is that part of the manifold the rubber is thin, in and around that stud hole, don't really need a whole bunch of rubber there.
    If its a concern just dob a glob of RTV on it

    Actually taking a second look at mine the blemish goes all the way thru to the Aluminum. I can see it but can't get a good picture of it..

    Ah I see the blem. its a blem bubble in the manifold, it goes to nowhere.
    Here is the OE from mi, darn near same blem
    That rubber is like a .250 thick molded over top the aluminum it would really have to come un-bonded in a big way to cause a leak
