The original points-type pump works pretty darn well - as an added
bonus, when they start to "go" they will tell you just how they did to
you yesterday:  they'll stop working, but a little tap will get them
going again, and probably be OK for quite a while, plenty of time to fix
it or get a new one.  With the electronic pumps, usually when they go,
thats it, you're stranded.

In any case I'd inspect your old pump, maybe it just needs new points,
fix it up and keep it as a spare.  Put it in the boot for cross-country
