SOURCE: raising the handlebars

If your bike is older it might have a quill stem.To raise this you have to undo the allen key headed bolt situated where the bar & stem attach to the bike.It is often obscured by a plastic plug to prevent water rusting the bolt head.If this doesn't go high enough an adjustable quill stem must be fitted.
If you have the modern design of stem(A-head)you will have to replace the stem with an adjustable type which can be set upto 60 degrees.

SOURCE: I need help putting together

Hi in the headset there is a ballbearing set for the top and bottom. Insert fork through position. From the top you can slide the handlebar over the extension. Make sure that you align correctly. Then fasten with the allen key.

SOURCE: We are assembling a Schwinn

You mean somebody stepped on it in the crate? Give it a pull apart while stepping on it, make it fit, the fork needs to go in between the bearing race and the nut. Make sure the bearings are not tight, not loose either. Hope this helps.

Schwinn 12 Roadster trike-handlebar does not fit into fork steer. Handlebar & fork have approx. same circumference, so can't slide it in. Is the handlebar defective & needs to be replaced? Thanks!

I assume you mean the handlebar stem does not fit into the fork steerer. Approximately the same diameter is not good enough. The stem has to be the correct size for the fork. The two most likely sizes are 22.2mm and .833 inches (21.15mm). Most stems have the size stamped near the bottom. There's a good chance your trike has a .833 steerer. Stems for that size are still available.

I'm trying to assemble a Schwinn 12" Roadster trike, but the handlebars won't fit into the fork and clamp - it's almost the same width and won't slide in. Do I need a replacement part? Thank you!!

Without more information , I am more guessing than not . That being said , are the hand grips installed ? Of so , you may need to remove one to get the handlebars installed . If that is not the case , would it be possible to use a flat head screwdriver as a wedge to GENTLY spread the clamp ? ( You have removed the bolt , right ? )
Of course , there's always ;
Good luck !

I have a schwinn back of frame was stamped this #MA99361,is this serial# there is no other #s on the bike?

Yes, that is the serial number, but if you check the front of the head tube (or the Schwinn head badge) where the fork goes through to the handlebars there may be a date code also. See my tip below or just Google "Schwinn serial numbers" (or Schwinn date code) for more info.

I have just bought a new SCHWINN CORONADO WOMAN BIKE and i'm trying to assemble it. The distance between the fork dropoouts is bigger than the front wheel axis. The only possible assembly of the front...

When you tighten the quick-release skewer, the two sides of the fork will be pushed inwards over the axle. So basically, just tighten it up & it should be just fine. If not- take it back to the store you got it from!

In putting together my 26"

Loosen both nuts on front wheel.
Stand bike straight up, or set bike upside down on seat and handlebars.
With fingers on fork and thumb on wheel, pull wheel so it is centered on fork.

Now tighten one nut part way. Keep holding wheel.
You may need somebody to help.
Then tighten other nut.
Go back to fist nut and tighten a bit more.
Repeat back and forth tightening until nuts are tight and wheel is in center of fork.

Schwinn Scotch bike. Can't get the front wheel on. Have removed 1 nut and 1 washer from each side but the forks will not fit down onto the "screws" almost as if the forks are not set wide enough.

Stand the bike on seat and handlebars.
Have somebody steady the bike.
Bend the forks outward with both hands as you lower wheel into place.

I would like to service my Schwinn Mesa, Is there a manual? If not what needs to be done for a general service?

Check, clean, and lube all the brake and shifter cables. Check and possibly replace brake pads. Check for any play in the headset ( this is the tube that carries the bearings for the handlebars and front fork ). Clean and lube the chain, gears, and derailers. After all of that just check the torque on all the hardware and make sure nothing is coming loose.
