1998 Lincoln navigator with 180,000 miles is recently getting bad gas mileage and around 35 to 40 mph it will **** and seems to lose power then will start driving normal again but always have to press...

Your description sounds more like a torque converter clutch problem. It would explain the poor mileage, having to floor it to go. I suggest having the transmission scanned, looking at the slip speed of the torque converter clutch.

I have a 74 chevy c10 with a 350/350 combo. for some reason it wants to downshift from third gear to second gear when I'm barely into the gas pedal. it happens when I'm around 50/55 mph and my rpms...

Check the throttle cable it sounds like it has come unlocked On the driver side of the carb you will see the cable going to the trans. With the air cleaner off and engine not running take the carb linkage and open the linkage wide open while doing this watch the throttle cable if the whole spring loaded housing moves then it has come unlocked. To reset the cable hold the linkage wide open and push down a black tab located on the housing. If it is already down and the housing keeps moving then the housing is striped and you will have to replace the cable assm.

I have a 1973 Yamaha tx650 that I turned into a bobber. Straight pipes off the engine. When I ride it, the engine begins to lose power and bogs down, and back fires around 60 mph... even with the throttle...

with black plugs it might be that there is no back pressure because of the cut off pipes. It also could be valve guides leaking oil into the cylinders.It is most likely that the carbs are not tuned to the opened exhaust
