What do you think about my old ABP-446 Pump?

I have a old Craftsman Compressor with the ABP446 pump.


finding oil in the air filter housing. So I guess oil is getting by the rings. The unit will build 170lbs of pressure . Since this is building pressure the valves should be good right?
Is there a way to tell how bad the rings are by looking at them?

Also do you think there is any problem making the lower oil gasket and reusing the head gasket since the gasket kit is over 100 bucks.

Do you think this pump is worth fixing .. i read lots of people hate this pump but it was on a Craftsman unit.

Thank you for the help..
