Oil coming out exhaust pipe, wont idle on 1968 VW motor

You need to remove the motor & dismantle it, then check the cylinder sleeves & pistons for wear, the rings will definately be worn. Best is to have the motor reconditioned if you are unable to do it yourself. There are no short cuts if oil is emitting from the exhaust.

the pistons can be installed from the bottom of the cylinder where there should be a chamfer ( use a ring compressor here makes the job easier--on the bench)
once you have the piston in the cylinder then install the assembly into the block taking care to ensure that the piston is at the top of the cylinder so that the big end doesn't damage the crank journal as you slide the cylinder down into the block I take it that the engine is a diesel ( wet sleeves) so check the liner to block face height before fitting because if the cylinder lip is too low , it will blow head gaskets
make sure that the piston is orientated correctly , the same as the others

How to replace 2006 dodge stratus cigarette lighter cylinder

The lighter base is held on with a threaded sleeve from the back. You would need to get access to the back of the socket to remove it.
You can look at a new part to see how the sleeve is attached.

How to bore out top end of motor? and how much does it cost?

Honestly - it's just as cost effective to just buy a new cylinder complete from Yamaha - unless you have a lot of porting done to your cylinder. The cylinders are plated and you typically don't bore them - you have them re-sleeved.

I have raced semi-pro for many, many years (AMA District 13, A-class). When I raced 125s (1998-2002) I would usually go through 6 to 8 cylinders per season and I would rebuild the engine after every race (every week). I never bothered getting the worn cylinders resleeved because the sleeves cost almost as much as a new cylinder from Yamaha.

Price out a new cylinder then price out the re-sleeve. You'll see there's only a slight difference. I recall the new cylinders being about $245 and a sleeve was around $225.

Once you get it rebuilt, keep the ring fresh and make sure you run at least 28:1 mix. I raced at 26:1 to get the engines to last. They are single ringers and the piston ring just doesn't last. Yamaha recommends changing the ring every 2.2 hours for maximum output. I couldn't get 2 hours on a motor running 32:1, so I switched to 26:1 for more lubrication and better sealing of the ring. Long story.

I hope this helped.

How to fit front master cylinder repair kit on a honda cbx 550 motorcycle. cylinder /lever already removed from bike.

Just remove the lever, gently pull rubber boot out of the body, take a snap ring pliers,and remove the circlip, and pull the piston out of the body. Use the piston as a reference to install the seals correctly on the new piston. Be sure to take out the screw in the reservoir, remove the reservoir, and clean the fluid return pin hole ( Must Be Clear) , next to the large fluid feeder hole. Also using a dowel covered with a lint free cloth gently wipe out the piston sleeve being careful not to scratch the walls ( Do Not Hone The Master Cylinder or it will be ruined). Coat parts with brake fluid before reassembly in reverse order. Cover bike with plastic and put some old rags under master cylinder. Before tightening brake hose bolt, fill the master cylinder with dot 3/4 brake fluid and pump the lever until the master cylinder is pushing fluid out the end where bolt and hose are loosely connected, now tighten bolt holding the brake line on. This will aid greatly in bleeding the system.

Is there a coating on cylinder of my 01 kx 250 that wears off to make the cylinder usless

Yes, that is a plated cylinder so if it galls, or wears out, it cannot be bored out you have to put a new sleeve in it. The new sleeve will be able to be bored out so it will last for a long time. The resleeving is best left to a cycle shop or machine shop with the propper equipment, as it is an interfearence fit and the cylinder must be bored perfectly, then heated in an oven to be able to install the new sleeve.
