New deadbolt notworking?

You have the lever that goes from the key cylinder part of the lock through the striker portion of the locking assembly turned part way, either in the wrong direction or not turned enough in the right direction so if you take the inside portion of the lock off and pull the outside portion out of the door and rotate the lever to its proper position and then put if all back together in the correct sequence it should work properly.

Unable to remove old door handle for Baldwin 5255 lever

They are usally pressure fitted, however paint on the door it self will make it stick.
Take an sharp utility knife and score the paint as tight to the
escutcheon as you can, then it should pry off.

I have 2 mintcraft hydraulic door closers and one of them will not close on its own when opened past a certain point, is there a way to fix this?

The problem you have is there is either something inside the closer keeping it from closing or the closer is worn out and has tightened up. You can take the closer off and see if you can get it to work without being attached to the door to determine what is causing the problem. Also if your door is in a windy area then that could cause it to stay open. If you can't figure out what's causing the problem then you can replace the closer with a new one. If i'm not mistaken they run somewhere between 10 to 20 dollars depending on where you go to buy one.

Pulled of doorknob, all the peices fell out and now i cant put it back together

If this is an inside door from an old house, just take another one apart very slowly to see how the pieces fit. If this is an an outside door from a newer house, you might want to just buy a new lockset and follow the directions carefully. I assume you took it apart because it wasn't working anyway.

Baldwin 6321 mortise:when locked can open from either side

It sounds as if the lock is installed backwards or more specifically in inside mechanism. The inside lever/handle when turned should retract the deadbolt (safety feature). If yours does not currently switch around.
