Yes, before taking things apart takes notes, drawings, sketches, pictures so you'll have everything plumbed back the way it was. You don't want to be guessing where everything goes.

If by vacuum plumbing you are including the intake idle air path, then this is a worthwhile endeavor. Make sure you carefully research and verify you have all the correct parts before disassembly. Old rubber is brittle and hard, which makes removal without damage very difficult.
