Cluch cover melted from the heat. Does this mean i have a bad cluch?

I you did not have one before this occurred, chances are it is toast now. Can occur if you are driving around with no clutch material on clutch plate-- metal to metal contact with flywheel with lots of slippage. HOT!

2006 suzuki boulevard m109r battery help please........I'm trying to figure out why the positive battery terminal is getting hot enough that it melted through the plastic battery cover

Greetings, Dude. Unless there's a hot pipe near the battery, the melted battery case could be the result of a serious short circuit somewhere along that positive cable. On advisement, resistance in a conductor causes heat, so be sure to ascertain that the cable connection AT THE BATTERY is not corroded or otherwise compromised. This could be a dangerous situation. Automotive batteries emit hydrogen gas during the process of charging and discharging. This gas could cause an explosion if a spark occurs nearby. Thus we need to insure that the connections are near perfect. If your battery case is cracked or otherwise compromised, take it out of service and dispose of it properly. Good Luck. Herb

How do i loosen a abs pipe secured with plumbers glue?

There is no way to loosen this pipe if it has been glued. You only option is to cut the pipe and either add a section back to it, cut it and put a coupling in.

Cluch fan is not working have installed new clutch fan and have power at main fuseis relay under fender and what number is the fuse in the cab.

You need to look for a 12V thermostat kit for your electric fan.

Autozone link HERE
See pic below

It has a electric thermostat,relay and wiring.

Check the maker of the fan. They alway has a kit to go with the fan.

DO NOT tap into the fuse box.

It will keep draw so much current and it will melt the wiring on the long ran.

Without this kit,it will also drain you battery.
Most electrical cooling does not has a built-in thermostat.

How hot is the Vent temp of my new Duet?

It's not the temperature of the air that is the problem. The air is seldom over 160 Deg F. If you have a vent fire the piping needs to last long enough without melting to starve the fire of oxygen in the hopes of extinguishing. Rigid aluminum piping is best suited for this, Rigid flexible is next. The tin foil and white plastic offer little resistance to melting if a fire should begin. The melting would allow the fire to replenish oxygen and support the burning process. The main caution here is to keep your dryer and vent least annually.

If the duct inside your wall is rigid metal all the way from the dryer to the house exit you need to do nothing to it . Replace the vent between the dryer and the wall with rigid metal 4" piping or hard flexible aluminum piping. If the duct inside your wall is either of the least effective types you need a new run of vent for the dryer to avoid a fire.

You can't use white plastic or flimsy flexible aluminum that feels like aluminum foil when you touch it.

To bleed the clutch, there is a little slave cylinder next to the transmission, on that slave cylinder there is a bleed nipple. Undo that put a pipe on it that fit nicely, put the other end of the pipe in a jar with some brake fluid. When you have got that right, pump the clutch pedal up&down. but keep a eye on the fluid in the reservoir under the hood, keep pumping the pedal until all the air bubbles are gone. when they have all gone tighten up the bleed nipple without taking the pipe off. then you are done.

Good luck!!

Wiring on top of battery case looks to be melting

The wire that is getting so hot may have gotten chaffed and shorted out. do you have aftermarket accessories connected ? They may be drawing too much amperage.
