Where your problem occurs off idle, I don't know for sure this is your problem. If you have the stock Hitachi carb, you've got some solenoids that adjust fuel mixture. In any case, I'd say your carb is due for a rebuild. Running any kind of cleaner through the fuel system isn't the same as taking apart a carb and cleaning it. If you've got 36k on your car, the carb probably hasn't ever been rebuilt. Gasoline separates into varnish-like residues with time, and it's actually more harmful to a carb to sit for a long time than to run.
I can't say this is definitely the problem your car is having, but if I were working on it, the carb rebuild is where I would look first.

If the fuel pump is the source of my problems, where should I purchase one?

If you have an analog meter, the type with a meter movement, then you will need to select the proper voltage range and keep track of the polarity. The black common lead needs to be on the grounded side (usually this is the minus side but not always) of the circuit. It is good practice to place the black lead of either meter to the grounded side of the circuit unless you are doing something different than a normal measurment.
I think the fuel pump connection is under the rear seat on the passenger side. You may be able to wrap a small wire around the connect to monitor the power to the pump.
