Default Sound like a fuel pump?

89 Toyota Cressida. About 1.5 years ago replaced the crapped out
factory fuel pump with a not-Toyota pump from one of the chain parts
houses. Ran fine until about a week ago. Drove all day, was in a
parking lot, came back out, car started but stumbled upon starting,
died. Started it again, ran kind of stumbly until I gave it some gas
and got it up to speed then it seemed to be okay....

....until last night when it did the same thing - as it so happened it
was in the same parking lot - but the symptoms got worse. Ran hitchy -
intermittent cutting out, eventually died in the road. Pulled into the
median. After a few minutes of cranking/dying, cranking no start,
finally got it running enough to get it home. This am it fired right
up and it's running smooth as silk, just as it did between instances
described above.

Does this intermittent symptom that seems to be getting worse make you
think fuel pump?

Thanks.

Sounds like a problem with the ignition system. Just a guess.
