falcon fuel pump question

I have a 1961 ford falcon with a 144 in line 6cyl. it is a basic just use here and there car. really never more than 25 miles at a time. it has the combo fuel/ vacuum pump. however the two outlets off the vacuum pump have been snapped off for years and the wipers are pulling vacuum off the base of the carb. when i got car was set up that way. i do all my own work and redid car( bodywork and basic white paintjob) . car is a driver not a trailer car. recently fuel pump base started to leak. tightened up screws a hair and stopped leaking but seem like car has fuel delivery issue. hestitates and stalls here and there. have relatively new fuel tank, stabilized fuel, new fuel filter. I want to just ditch the fuel pump/ vacuum pump combo and go to the just fuel pump option. my concern is the arm that goes into the block and runs of the cam eccentri looks slightly different on the fuel/ vaccum pump combo in comparison to the fuel pump only version. I dont want to snap something off inside of the block and screw up my motor. was thinking about electric fuel pump in line conversion but seem wrong/ not time fram correct. any help greatly appreciated. ps just running basic manual choke
one barrel carb factor set up

Well I don't have an answer, I had a few falcons/Mavericks/Mustangs back in the day. I don't remember if there ever was a substitute pump. You might check a Maverick pump I think they were 170/200 cu in. same family block wise. I remember adding a vac tank to a guys old ford truck that had vac wipers. It worked well and the wipers worked even when you put your foot into it.
