General instructions for replacing motor mounts on ANY vehicle: Put a floor jack under the engine, distributing the weight evenly using a board or some other object, just take the weight from the motor mounts by jacking up the engine slightly. Loosten the nuts that hold the engine to the motor mounts, jack up the engine until you have an inch or two clearance. finish removing the motor mounts, then put the replacment motor mounts in the same place. Lower the engine back onto the motor mounts, but keep the weight off the motor mounts until you have put the nuts back in place. After everything is back in place, take the rest of the weight off the jack and you're done.

Will an Oldsmobile 350 motor with headers fit in a 1971 Chevy truck?

yes and no yes in that it can be made to fit no in that a Chevy transmission has a different bolt pattern than Oldsmobile's, Buick's, and Pontiac's. the motor mounts are also probably going to be different. However you can change the motor mounts and there are companies that make adapters to use a Chevy transmission with a Oldsmobile, Buick, or Pontiac engine.
