Buick nail head fuel pumps

I am working on a 1956,322 nail head. It has a combo fuel/vacuum pump. Will any newer fuel pump only pumps work on this engine?

Unfortunately, the mounting is different between the early Buick and the "second generation" nailhead Buick engines. eBay has the one shown below (top photo) for $95 plus $15 S&H.

Thanks a lot. You saved me some headaches. I will just rebuild the old one and see if I can eliminate the vacuum part of it.
