Vacuum Problems

Your Elky sounds like a great ride. I don't have any experience with vacuum pumps.
However I have a '83 T Type Regal with a hydraulic power brake unit. The power steering pump supplies the pressure. I've had the car for over 10 years and never had any trouble with it. I saw one on a '80's Caprice station wagon once also. It could be an alternative.
