Not having purchased a "kit" but only specific parts as necessary, I don't know whether the Kit includes a replacement Pulse Damper but, if not, it should. We also have two of these pumps and I have found that the deterioration of the Pulse Dampers and releated seepage around the seal of the base plate can be an issue. I have also found that replacing the 40PSI pressure switch with the 20PSI switch can make a difference in the endurance of the pump and pressure switches without an appreciable impact on the pump's performance or delivery at the fixtures.

FWIW...
