What's MY engine's Displacement?

Embed Calculator requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.

You must have the current version of the adobe flash player to use this online calculator.

We can use this Calculator with this formula  to calculate the displacement:  Enter what is Blue.  (that in parentheses appears on its screen)
1st:  Press (enter) "
C" to clear the computer.
Then enter
3.175 (std. Bore) + 0.030 (oversize) = (3.2175 new bore) ÷ 2 = (1.6085 is 1/2 the bore) x 1.6085 (times itself) x 3.1416 (Pi)
x 3.75 (stroke) x 8 (number of cylinders) = 243.88 cubic inches displacement. 

If you know the bore & stroke you can skip the first part:  3.4375 ÷ 2 = 1.71875 X 1.71875 X 3.1416 X 4.125 X = 306.26  (the biggest!)
