It is not recommended to cut the transducer cables as they are sensitive to outside interference.  Most trolling motors have adjustable shafts so you can set it at the depth you want. Look for a locking mechanism where the shaft attaches to the mounting bracket.

Electrolux model EI28BS56IS1 frig compressor fan not running I checked voltage at fan plug and only had 54 volts ac

Hello Joe, thank you for your post! If the compressor is not working properly, then it could possibly be faulty, have a floating restriction in the lines or something more complicated like an issue with the sealed system. Once the compressor is not working there is a possibility that the evaporator fan is not turning and may have even coolant in the lines at incorrect levels to properly cool. At this point, I would recommend having a service technician to diagnose the problem before investing in unnecessary parts.

Shaft is stuck in the squirrel cage in swamp cooler how do i get it out?

If you are planning to replace the shaft;
if your able to loosen the 2 square headed bolts( which must be done to allow for shaft movement) do so, then after bearings and pulley are off emerycloth (smooth no burrs or rust) the shafts 2 ends and get grinder and cut thru the shaft on the inside of squirrel cage area as close to the edge of cage as possible drive the shortened pieces of the shaft inward( oil this pieces to help ease movement thru blower wheel) until they are removed replace shaft with new shaft and re-install parts and or replace as needed bearings and blower wheel. I am getting ready to do this very job myself ( take measurements of shaft on each side to ensure your back where you started when done)

Extremely loud noise when spinning. Sounds like dry bearing

If you have loud noises on spin it is quite possibly bearings.
You may also find that the inner drum becomes loose and may contact and wear the outer drum..
Replacing the bearings and possibly the shaft going through them is quite a big job. Best left to an experienced tech..
Get quotes before getting the job done. Check new prices also...
Good luck....Nomess

How can i lower the height of the bike i am on my tip toes

Only two ways you can acheive this. the first is to have your rear suspension modified, or lowered by about an inch should do it. This job would most likely have to be done at a mechanics shop. But is possible.
The second solution, involves lowering your seat height, by cutting about an inch or so of foam off the top of the seat. This job is also best done by an upholsterer, but is a possible aternative to lowering the suspension, get your seat chopped down.

Cut Cable on Bosch Hedge Trimmer.

Been there. Done that. Now it is up to the "expert" to go back over the rewire job and find what's wrong and fix it. Oh yeah, I once used my hedge trimmer to shorten a brand new extension cord!

How hard is it to put a clutch in a 1995 saab 900s

You may find that this job is quite difficult as the transmission needs to come out, drive shafts, shifter, etc. Not a task for a novice, fairly complicated...
