Assuming everything is functional, replacing it will still require connection of the pactor modem, tuner and antenna to a new transceiver so buying a new one won't serve any purpose. The AF in, out and PTT are required as well with anything you purchase new although some of the contemporary equipment will allow direct connection to accessory jacks.

Interconnecting everything is more complicated to explain than it is to do. I recognize you probably don't intend to use this for ham communications but there are a few elementary books explaining the setup and operations including lots of drawings which can be found on the ham radio web site, ARRL.org where you can buy them
