Is it normal to hear a squeak from the number 4 cylinder rod bearing as I manually rotate engine crank? I have the front end and oil pan off.

make sure that the squeak is not from dry rings in the bore
put oil down the cylinder and rotate the crank
if it goes it could be just dry and need no further checks but if it is in a bearing then it is serious and needs replacing
turning a crank should produce a dry scraping noise as the pistons move up and down the bores but certainly not other noise

Why would the bottom blow out of a six month old slave cylinder from a Toyota land cruiser

The only end that can blow on a slave cylinder is the push rod end and a sudden loss of fluid means that the rubber cup in side has failed or the push rod has been pushed out of the cylinder . Replace it with a new one

Need to remove the lock cylinder from the door handle panel on 1992 Chey PU

There is a C-clip between the lock cylinder and the door's inner sheet metal. You pry the clip out from the end of it that has the little lip on it.
To get the lock rod loose, there is an ingenious little plastic clip on the end of the rod where it goes into a hole, clamping it in place, so it won't come out of the hole by itself. To release it, just pry the plastic clip away from the rod and it will pull out of the hole.
Good luck.

excessively worn.
Inspect the valve stem tip contact surface of each
rocker arm and replace any rocker arm that is deeply
Inspect each push rod end for excessive wear and
replace as required. If any push rod is excessively
worn because of lack of oil, replace it and inspect the
corresponding hydraulic tappet for excessive wear.
Inspect the push rods for straightness by rolling
them on a flat surface or by shining a light between
the push rod and the flat surface.
A wear pattern along the length of the push rod is
not normal. Inspect the engine cylinder head for
obstruction if this condition exists.

the tappet plunger cap seat.

How to replace ignition switch

The switch is located inside the channel section of the brake pedal support and is completely inaccessible without first lowering the steering column. The switch is actuated by a rod and rack assembly. A gear on the end of the lock cylinder engages the toothed upper end of the rod.
If your vehicle is equipped with the SIR system follow the instructions in to disable the system before proceeding.
Lower the steering column, be sure to properly support it.
Put the switch in the OFF , unlocked position. With the cylinder removed, the rod is in the lock position when it is in the next to the uppermost detent. The OFF , unlocked position is two detents from the top.
Remove the two switch screws and remove the switch assembly.
Before installing, place the new switch in the OFF , unlocked position and make sure the lock cylinder and actuating rod are in the OFF , unlocked (third detent from the top) position.
Install the activating rod into the switch, then assemble the switch onto the column. Tighten the mounting screws. Use only the specified screws since overlength screws could impair the collapsibility of the column.
Reinstall the steering column.
Enable the SIR system.

    95 mustang, car started, now wont shut off, key cylinder replaced, if it is the rod linking cyl to switch, where can i download instructions to fix,

    Sounds like the key cylinder may have been installed ahead or behind by one notch. Take steering wheel off again, take out the set screw that holds the key cylinder in, pull out key cylinder and look inside and see where your rod is in relation to where key goes in. On the end of the key cylinder, there's a letter D casting has to match inside casting when you put it together. Otherwise, you'll be one notch out.
