George, I don’t have one in front of me to check myself, but normally the motor mount will have slot mountings, allowing you to loosen the nuts and move the motor to tighten or loosen the belt.

You will likely have to remove the shrouding, of course.

I think the belt on my Kobalt air compressor #215914 needs a new belt. Can I buy just the belt somewhere and what tools do I need? It looks like I’ll need a large “star” bit and a thin enough wrench to get into the small space to use it.

Since it’s a Lowes brand, start there, for both the belt and the tools to adjust it.

Looks like the piston rod has to be disconnected on the Kobalt 215914 compressor to get the belt in place.

Thanks for that. There are so many models of the popular Kobalt air compressors that it’s hard for any one person to know them all, and it’s tips from owners like you that help.
