I have a Groco Paragon JR (PJR-A) on my boat that has been in service for more than twenty years. I think I changed the pressure switch once but I've never rebuilt the pump. They are expensive but they really last.

Dach Side, I think I'd replace the breaker before I replaced the pump. Breakers sometimes get weak as they age. If the new breaker still pops, then look at the pump.

I guess if you're smarter than me you could just test the amp draw to see if it's excessive before you change anything.
