This is the old pressure system , right. What,I have is a big tank that looks like it is off of a air compresser and under the sink is a air compresser.

The air pump pressurizes the system and pushes the water through the lines. You can also pressurize it by pumping it up through that valve on the cap. You will quickly know if you have a leak....

My biggest question is so I try to get press water system working or do I replace it with updated tank and pump. I have 2 places to fix in plumbing that I know of. Should I replace copper with plastic limes?

Here's what I would do...
Chunk the nasty ole' metal tank. Get a plastic one and replumb with pex and a modern pump.
Your milage may vary...

That old metal tank is heavy and filled with ???? Replace with a plastic one and lighten the load enough to add more amenities you'd enjoy!

Before you remove the metal tank you should check it out. My 63 Tradewind still has its original metal tank and it is good as new. Fill it with water and add some bleach to clean it. Remove the cap under the trailer to drain it. Repeat if junk comes out.

Of course, if the tank leaks then all bets are off.

My tank doesn't leak, and no rust, crud, or junk ever comes out the tap. The water tastes fresh. I did remove the old pressure pump and just converted it to the new style water pump.

Good luck
