As to expected failure of a rebuilt in a year or two - I rebuilt my master cylinder somewhere between 1981 and 1983; it is still working.

If bore is smooth, I would rebuild, especially if you enjoy that sort of thing. (I do.)

Key to longevity is regular brake fluid changes. Don't have a clue as to why the original failed when it did.
