the gasket is broken. Can I get a new one or should I
replace the switch.
The hunt for spare parts, Elton, is sometimes long and fruitless and there is no guarantee that after all that time and effort, you will find a part for your compressor pressure switch.
I consider them a consumable, and for the cost of a new switch, that would be the way I would go.
Keep the old one for spare parts if you feel it worthwhile.
As long as the new switch fits the footprint of the old, has a similar pressure range, and interfaces with the unloader, it's all good.

I need the rubber diaphragm that goes under the pressure switch.
Frank, not too many places sell parts for pressure switches for DIY type air compressors.
My advice is that by the time you factor in your time chasing the pressure switch parts, and trying to reassemble the switch (with the point springs and so on) you will safe time and a lot of aggro by simply acquiring a new switch and replacing the whole thing.
That's my advice.
