To take apart compressors you sometimes need special tools as well as the gasket kit to replace the old one. If you are changing the compressor due to a bad unit I suggest contacting Sears Parts . The how-to is as follows: remove all air and rust contaminants from the tank by bleeding. This is located on the bottom of the pressure tank. Disconnect any power and tools from unit. remove guards over the belt. Loosen the electric motor from the tank base or housing. (I am assuming that your motor and compressor head are not joined. If they are then you must remove the unit as a whole from the tank.) By loosening the motor you should be able to slide the motor or remove it. Do this carefully as the belts can do damage. Unbolt and remove the compressor head from the tank by removing the air supply inlet pipe from the compressor head to the tank. This connection is easily damaged so use only necessary force to remove it. The brass that the line is made from is usually brittle and will need to be replaced after this for safety. I hope that you have enough info here to start if not give me a better idea of what you are looking at.

How to remove bent augers from craftsman 27 inch snow thrower. model #944.528393

There is no repair manual for Craftsman snowthrowers including the Husqvarna built ones like yours. Sears trains their techs to repair these, but not the general public.
Here is the operators manual. It includes detail parts listings so you should be able to go off them to tear the unit apart.
I suggest you split the snowthrower from the power unit and put it on a workbench at a convieninet height for you to work from.
On page 22 of the manual is a parts breakdown of the impeller/blower area. Use this to tear your unit apart.
Feel free to ask anymore questions.
