Note that there were two different fuel pumps used in 1953.  I forget at which VIN they made the change, but one had the glass bowl on top of the pump (early) and no glass bowl (late).

If you have your original pump, why not just send it out and have it rebuilt? Arthur Gould does a nice job with these....
