which vac pump repair kit?

So I have decided to rebuild the vac pump on both my 240's and have come across a choice of kits.
There is the main kit of which there is only 1 to choose but the remaining diaphragm fix kits are slightly different.
1 kit has 1 diaphragm and replacement bolts
The other kit has 2 diaphragms and no bolts.
The parts house says some pumps take 2 diaphragms but could not say how to know from external inspection.
I checked my engine #'s but that is no help.
Anyone know how to determine short of a teardown?
From what I can figure out both cars use the same pump.

Look at the pics at this site (the upper V Pump looks like a single diaphragm pump, the lower is a piston type V pump).
You can look at some other part selling sites and see if their pics match what you have on your car.

ANd you need to order a new gasket seperately.
