I have a Bulldog Pushbutton breaker box and one of my breakers is bad. The part number on it is P5140-2. It is a quad breaker 15/40/40/15. I cannot find a replacememt and I was wondering if I could replace it with a 20/40/40/20 (ITE P2040-2)?

You cane replace that with the 20/40/40/20 as long as the wire size on the two 20 amp poles are at least 12 gauge wire. It is a very good possibility that the wire is #12 wire, but you will have to verify that for sure before installing that breaker.
All of those breakers are getting more difficult to find and I'm sure that the quad is even more difficult.
Hopefully you have the 12 wire and then it will be no problem and you will be in good shape.

We have a westinghouse box and it has a 200 amp main breaker, but we cannot find a 200 amp breaker anywhere. Do you have any idea where we can locate one??

You should get the exact breaker number to be safe. Westinghouse is not Eaton. Here is one example.
There are many places online. 200A breakers rarely fail, unless loose connections on lugs (AL WIRE) cause overheating.

I have three bulldog pushmatic circuit breakers that will not push back in? Are they gone or can they be reset.

Either they are bad, or are "tripping" If they won't push in when removed, then they are bad. Not unusual. You can still buy them. Look online or Box stores

I need to buy a 20/20 Amp Bulldog breaker for a dryer and any installation tipes

Most electrical dryers are 220 volt. They usually require at least a two pole 30 amp circuit with #10 wire. The breakers you need can be found at most hardware and buidling type stores, Ace , Home depot, Lowes.
Yes they would have the 20/20 breaker also.

Please Vote !!

Bulldog breaker dead. Reset button depressed, but would not reset to on position, button remained depressed inward

These breakers do fail. Sometimes you can get them to reset by repeatedly pushing the breaker, but you would probably only get lucky once. These breakers are still available as replacements, and are at big box stores. These breakers bolt in, however. You should only attempt to replace the breaker if you have a main breaker that you can open to remove voltage from the rest of the panel. Even in a 240V residential panel there is a serious arc fault flash potential. If you have any doubts about replacing it yourself, consult someone with experience.

Breaker wont push back in

it is still detecting an overload in the circuit. Take the black wire off the breaker and see if it will reset. If so then you will have to trace the wires down to find the short circuit. If it doesn't reset then the breaker is bad

My Mom (86) has a bulldog panel with an intermittent 15 amp breaker. How do I remove it?? I was afraid of putting a screwdriver in between it and the main verticle strip (buss bar) and prying it out after...

The pushmatics get sticky more than trip when they shouldn't. Are you sure your Mom isn't just overloading that circuit? If so, changing the breaker or even changing the panel won't help.
Some Bulldog panels have the main breaker separte to the side of the branch circuit breakers - under the meter. I think some of them are designed so that you can de-energize the bus by turning of two of the top breakers, but I'm not sure.
You definitely shouldn't do this live. Have a meter to make sure it's not live when you do it. It would be very easy for your screwdriver to touch the bus bar and the metal frame at the same time.
But, again, maybe the problem is too many things plugged in.

Pushmatic 15amp breaker was buzzing. I turned it off and then pushed it to on again and the bussing was gone. Is the breaker going

Not necessarily, if the buzzing stopped then its probably ok. When a circuit goes bad, either they fail to trip open, or will not reset to the on position
