Absolutely! I have sucessefuly done it twice. The original ZF kit was
~$15, whereas a cheapest rebuilt pump is ~$180, and you also get to keep
your own trustworthy pump, instead of possibly getting some sorry, worn,
noisy unit on a core exchange basis.
Ahh, one more thing. In the past I've had some horrible experience with
rebuilt parts and, generally, don't trust any hydrolic rebuilts to
anyone but myself.
