It is in fact bolted directly to the motor. You should be able to do any repairs necessary without removing the pump from the motor. I am not sure of the set up of that motor. I'm not sure if undoing that plate will also remove that side of the motor. (Something you probably don't want to do.) If you see other screws or bolts under the plate I would assume that you are safe to remove the pump plate from the motor.

I have a 6HP 26gallon CH Model VT627102 compressor. The pump shaft seems to be bent. Is there anyway to replace the shaft or am I better off replacing the entire pump? Also, can I put a larger pump...

Hi gary sr...

You already know the answer sir...
You will be better of replacing the compressor its self...don't buy a total new machine, you could save yourself a few bucks by just replacing the compressor unit.
Go to and take a look at a replacement compressor unit, and then compare the price to a new compressor assembly...
I am sure you will buy the just compressor.

I have a craftsman model 919184160 air compressor and the pump has went out. The assembly pump part number is AC-0722. My question is can I get a replacement pump and what are my options?

Yes you can get a replacement Pump. However you also can get all the parts to fix your old pump.
Depending on what is wrong with the pump. It might be cheaper to fix yours.

One of the most common problems is that the flappers bend or break. Number 53 on the diagram shown HERE

Craftsman compressor won't cycle off

Hi, First, I think the cutoff pressure is 135psi and there is an overpressure valve so let it run a little longer. I don't know exactly which model you have ( some of these were oil less) but if it is running longer than you remember, be sure to check the oil if necessary, make sure you are not using a long extension as this will cause the motor to slow down and definitely check to make sure the water is drained and the drain petcock is closed all the way. Also check it without an air hose attached. Good Luck!

Craftsman 6hp 150psi 30gal won't keep running

It sounds like the internal circuit breaker in the motor is heating up and then the breaker trips to shut down the motor. This is the protection so you don't have a fire if the motor burns up. The smell you have is the coils in the motor. Sorry to say that you will need a new motor for this unit. I hope this helps out.

Builds pressure, will not cycle back on and leaks fluid

Your compressor is most likely made by Campbell Hausfeld. The oily substance could be leaking from the capacitor on the motor. Remove the cover and examine the capacitor for failure. There is a value printed on the cap. (uf) The cap must measure to within 95% of printed value. A failing capacitor will cause the hum that you are experiencing.
