A Binks 2001 is not very old. We used to use them spraying CARC (Chemical Agent Resistant Coating) on MRAP (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected) trucks back in 2008/2009. It's made for a pressure pot system. We bought just the guns and used them on HF pressure pots then eventually made our own system that held 9 gallons in each tank.
Most auto paint stores and Sherwin Williams stores stock all the replacement parts for them. The seal kit, the needle, needle seat etc. Plus they also stock several sizes of needle and nozzle for whatever style paint you are using.
BTW the CARC is real thick and abrasive so we used the largest needle and Nozzle and had to change them once a month. The needle would get a groove worn in it from the paint and then it would start to drip.
If you do a lot of spraying it is a good gun but keep it clean. Take it apart after every use. By that I mean pull the needle and the nozzle and the needle seat and leave those parts in lacquer thinner.
To spray dyes you will need the smallest needle. since it is on a cup you are limited to spraying right side up. You can take the cup off and get a small pressure pot. No need for that big a pot just for using dyes.
I'd suggest a touch up gun. Looks like that gun but a miniature size. You can get them with the cup on top or on bottom.
