Who condemned the fuel pump? When you have a stalling concern, the best course of action is to do some initial testing to find out what ingredient is missing -- typically spark or fuel. In some cases, a massive air leak could cause the engine to starve for fuel too. I'm finding it odd that you would have no or low fuel pressure at first, and now a distributor problem. If the fuel pump was a guess without a diagnostic test, then your current actual diagnosis is probably accurate. If the same shop condemning your distributor first condemned your fuel pump...I'd be wary. As far as confirming -- we can confirm your concerns, but you would be best to have someone local catch your failure in the act and get it diagnosed right the first time.
