Default Power Steering Repair Questions

Have a 63. Makes the typical "groans" I can live with that.. However:

Several leaks..

One at the pump somewhere.. Not too bad, but requires fill up after a few drives.

Second at the shaft (not sure of name) that comes out of the gearcase under the car and points toward the ground.

This one is a steady drip when running, slow drip when sitting. Have to fill the reservoir every time I drive it now.

Has "stopped working" a few times while driving, likely went empty, but could be failing??


QUESTIONS:

Replace all components?

Remove and rebuild?

Can a shade-tree mechanic do this? Looks kinda like a specialist sort of repair?

Anyone know the cost of parts? Cost of a mechanic doing this?
