I trying to install a zero clearence insert on a 10" delta table saw ,the instuctions said to replace my 10" blade with a 7 1/4 blade then raise the with saw running which I did, then put the 10" blade back on. The 10" blade does't fit through the new cut
I'm not sure why the instructions said to change the blade in order to cut the slot. I've made several of the zero clearance inserts (for different blades) and always made the slot with the blade I intend to use it with. Of course, you need to match the inserts to the blades (I just tie wrap them together.

See how an in the way power box on a 10 inch Delta table sawwas switched out ... Would you happen to have a wiring diagramfor your saw.
You can find a nice quality feather board that will fit your table saw from www.leevalley.com. They have one that comes with both 5/8" and 3/4" table bars and sells for about $15. I have one and it works great, Look under the Woodworking tab and type in feather boards. Look at the brand Versatile Featherboards. http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/page.aspx?p=60022&cat=1,240,45884,60022 You may want to call Lee Valley to see if they have a zero clearance insert that will fit your saw. Otherwise, order a new insert from Sears Parts Direct. From the picture on their website I believe it comes as a blank and you will need to cut the new opening in the insert. To do that lower the saw blade all the way below the table top, install the new insert, move the rip fence over top of the insert but not over where the saw blade would penetrate, turn on the saw, and slowly raise the blade up through the insert.
Left-tilt, right-tilt refers to the direction the top of the blade can be tilted when it is not straight up and down. There will be an indicator on the front of the saw, normally pointing to zero. When you adjust the blade away from zero, if it tilts to the left, it is a left-tilt saw.
Use an appropriate pc of mdf that is same thickness of throat plate already installed. Use a router to flush trim to that throat plate. Now, insert and hold down with clamps and scrap panel. Raise Dado head ,while running, enough to do the job. This completes a zero clearance throat plate. No need to buy!
Check that the blade is not warped or binding. Don't use long extension cords. Check your home breakers. Also check if the table saw has a breaker. Don't force lumber into the blade too fast and don't jam the lumber between the guide and blade. Try a different outlet and check your wire for breaks. Good luck!
Undid the RH fence-bolt in the table behind the fence and tapped the end of the fence forward to make it perpendicular to the blade. Tighten bolt. When you look down on the two fence bolt heads, one is easy to rotate with a socket wrench, the LH bolt head would be very, very difficult to move. Undo the RH bolt to swing the fence angle WRT the blade.
Yes. normally an eight inch stack dado set is used on a 10 inch saw. You will also have to purchase or fabricate a special throat plate (non-metallic) to accomodate the extra thickness of the dado set.
The number of blades used, and therefore the thickness, varies depending upon the task at hand.
Make sure to use the factory supplied nut and washer to capture and tighten the dado set securely on the arbor.
Be very cautious in the use of dados. Do not raise the set higher than 1/4" or so until you are familiar with the use of a dado set. Try to avoid so-called "wobble" dado sets. They are IMHO more prone to dangerous kickbacks and harder to adjust than a stack dado set with dado shims.
