Well, I installed the belt today.  First I removed 3 bolts (3/8″) that hold down everything (last picture).

Then removed 4 bolts (3/8″) from the pump thing.  This is how you get the belt on.

Then put the belt around the plunger then around the small gear.  Then roll it around the large gear.  Done!

Misc. information about the compressor:

To order the belt just call 1-888-895-4549 and ask for the 007-0068 belt.  It is the only belt they ship / sell, so it is easy.

It only took me 5 months to order and get the replacement belt.  The bill did not have a total but the sales person said it should cost around $40.  Now I need to install the belt.

My Kobalt (aka Lowes 99007 vlk1582609) 26 gallon air compressor died today and I had to go to Sears to purchase a T25 screw driver that was long enough to open this thing.  I am going to have to call Lowes for a replacement belt (007-0068 Carlisle 62-1289).
