After I had a chance to look at the motor I noticed a hole about the size of my thumb tip behind the starter motor and knew that that was the culpret. Is it worth looking for a new motor and if yes what are my options get the motor repaired or start parting the bike out and look for another one?,I´d say repair it. They are the same motors as the 750monsters although I think cams may be different. a 900 motor should go in just fine as well. The 750s are quite rare (I´m finishing mine and there are less than you´d think...) It´s a bike totally worth throwing a new engine in.,,,

Sounds like you need to replace thermostat assy and add new antifreeze and as far as your oil gauge, replace the "oil pressure sending unit". That should solve your problem

I have a 1985 mack r model with a mechanical 283 engine. Truck is over heating and has engine oil in cooling system. Last night I rebuilt the oil cooler and flushed the cooling system two times. Last night...

Sounds as if you may have blown head gasket or cracked head. Try using a pressure gauge unit on radiator to see if pressure goes down, or try looking in radiator while running to see if bubbles appear. Either way, bad luck I'm afraid.

1998 Sebring JXi... oil pressure light came on then lost all power (like in neutral)

Have you checked the oil level in the engine? Without suffient oil, the oil pressure will drop.

Low oil pressure and stop engine light after changing battery and alternator hear knocking now

I see more than one issue in your story. Its possible the computer lost memory and will need to relearn. But that would not explain the knocking noise. The oil pressure warning might explain the noise if oil pressure really is low. Running without the belt for even 5 min would not cause the problems you describe.
I would focus on the low oil pressure warning and the noise first.

Possible oil pump problem

You need to determine if the engine has lost oil pressure (assuming the oil level is good) You need to place a mechanical gauge where the oil sending unit is that goes to your gauge. If this gauge reads low, you have an oil pump problem. Keep in mind that gauges and sending units can go bad. But the loosing power doesn't sound good. Start here to determine what is up.

Cuts off, but will restart, then cuts off again

Likely, you have a damaged engine bearing. When there is a problem there it will turn oil pressure light on because bearings keep the pressure inside the crankshaft...It may stop as the bearing overheats and binds, then loosens up a bit allowing a re-start when it gets cooler. Battery sounding dead is likely because the engine is locking up and too difficult for starter to turn.
At this point, it is not a do-it -yourself project ...either you need a lower end rebuild or engine replacement.

Where the hell is the oil going?

the oil needed topping up every now and again. Every time Ive been for a ride when I get home I keep the bike upright and check the level in the tube and theres always none in there. For the 3rd time in a row, I have removed the panel, stopped the bike (its just been ridden so still hot) and fill it up to just above the min mark. Yet when I next have been out for a ride and check it again, theres none in the tube again! I dont see it leaking from anywhere, theres no oil in the bellypan or around the engine bottom, and the engine doesnt smoke or anything. Any ideas?,You need to wait about 5-10 mins after you've switched off to check oil i also had this where couldn't see in tube and ended up overfilling the old girl had the oil dropped and refilled with correct ammount and then i could see it in the tube, was as if there was air in pipe or summat stopping reading should be 3.5-3.7 litres i believe ,,,
