To replace motor mounts, they are unbolted and the engine is raised off them. You can use a mobile crane (cherry picker) to lift the engine. The mount is replaced with a new one. Install the engine mount bolts loosely on the block. Leave them loose during engine installation so that the mounts can be more easily aligned with the frame mount brackets. A rolling head prybar is handy when aligning mounts. Use the pointed end to line up the mount bolt holes before installing the mount bolts. A rolling head prybar is helpful when aligning motor mounts. Do not use the engine mount bolts to pull a V-type engine into place. Use shims if necessary to fill any gaps between the mount and block. The Automotive Engine Rebuilders Association reports numerous cases of block distortion resulting in scuffed pistons in cylinders, near mount that were forced tight.

What should be the changeover time for star to delta?

The change over time will vary with the type of motor, size of motor and the connected load to the motor. The time should be adjusted so that the motor is up to speed and stabilized at the star speed. It is at this point that the change to delta should take place. One thing to note is, do not leave the motor running is the star position any longer that it needs to.
