Posted a complete restore of one of these on my thread.

Really no rocket science. The only thing really needed is the pulley extractor. In the states you can rent them at most car shops, over here, forced to bought one from snap-on, tho less than the repair costs stated above. I've actually used it already 3 times since then. Not your daily tool, but still handy to have.
The second thing to know is that when pump looks empty and is out of it casing, its not! Once you open the "bell" inside, there is another 30cc trapped in there. So may you'd do it, make sure you have some container underneath.

If you need refill, with all new o-rings/gaskets or just because it went out. Once you have the hoses back on it, fill till level. Turn pulley by hand before place belt on.
Once car runs, stop after few secs. check level again, then restart and turn the wheels from side to side and let it there 2-4 secs. Check level once more, you should be good to go.

I did consider it, and read multiple posts on how. Seems fairly straightforward and the repair kit is inexpensive.  

But there are also stories of newbies trying and ruining their originals and needing replacements, so in my quest to try and stay as close to original as possible and knowing my own limitations, I sent it out.

I totally get it. The first time you do it, it feels like you open some kind of mysterious box with hightech secrets inside.
In practice, you'd be amazed how easy that is. You can take picts each and every part that you remove. I always do.
In fact the same applies to most of the stuff you'd find on our cars.

I can't really imagine what the "newbies" you mention did to f... that up really. Must be the same type as those trying to remove spark plugs with pliers...

One thing is sure, you save yourself a dirty job!
