I'm leaning towards that as the car has 275K.

But, I'm just curious as to what would cause my rebuild job to fail.

They sell an other kit that completely replaces everything on the on the drive side of the vacuum pump; are, pins, bearing and ect. The catch is that if you buy both rebuild kits it will cost almost as much as a new vacuum pump and the new pupm would come with a warranty.
Here is an example of a place that sells the Arm assembly. But some places sell the Arm kit for close to $300.
