New Fuel Pump

For the first time yesterday my dependable "B" left me stranded along the road
while I was on my way to work.  I could hear the engine starting to die so I
immediately pulled to the side and was trying to figure out why it was
starving for gas.  Gas tank was full and everything seemed fine.  Then I
realized I was no longer hearing the familiar tick of the fuel pump from
behind my seat and figured the pump contacts must have froze or died
completely.  After sitting for nearly 1/2 hour I tried it again and heard the
contacts so I immediately started the engine and continued to my destination.
After work it started fine and took me home with no problems.

Question:  Before this occurs again I'm going to purchase a new fuel pump.
Yesterday was just a warning but next time it may not correct itself.  Do you
suggest staying with the same type of SU fuel pump (Moss 377-165) or is it
better to go ahead and purchase an SU solid state fuel pump with modern
reliable electronic solid state switching (Moss 377-255)?  I'm going to order
one immediately so any advise would be great.  Thank you.
