Having trouble finding the right tool to remove shroud from air compressor


I have a craftsman tank mounted air compressor Model 919.167370. I ordered the replacement parts, however I am having difficulty removing the shroud in order to replace the parts.

I do not know what type of tool is needed, nor do I know the particular type and size screw holding the shroud.

shroud from 919.167370 - the right tool

It's likely a hex key you need, although it could be a star or plain hex head bolt.

If you can see which, get a set - if not, get both - they are fairly inexpensive. I'm assuming you've tried a hex head socket, and Phillips screwdriver.

It'll probably be metric, too, depending on how old it is.
