I see a new pump is around $160, so if the tank and motor are good, I'd either fix the the pump or replace it, depending on what parts it needs.

The parts cost alone adds up to more than that quickly.

Good luck.

That certainly suggests that the pump needs a valve / gasket and piston ring kit.

Scrap it or repairable?

Up to you. Your skills, the cost of the kits if any available, and whether or not you want to.
