Well if you know the displacement, number of cylinders, and geometric compression ratio, you have everything you need to figure out the clearance volume.

Compression Ratio = (Displacement + Clearance Volume)/(Clearance Volume)

- rearranged gives: clearance volume = displacement/(comp. ratio -1).

A reasonable assumption of compression ratio on a modern F1 engine is somewhere around 12-13.5:1, I would say. So assume 12.8:1 compression ratio. You also now that each cylinder displaces 2400cc/8 = 300cc.

So, clearance volume = ( 300cc ) / ( 12.8 - 1) = 25.42cc

That should get you in the ballpark anyway.

Head gaskets do not go bad on these. You need to replace the plastic upper intake manifold as it is leaking coolant into the combustion chamber. Common problem for this engine.

It can. If one of the valves was in the combustion chamber at the time and the piston came up, it could damage the valve train and the top of the piston.

### What does the liters in car motors refer to?

In most internal combustion engines, a piston travels within a cylinder, compressing a mixture of air and fuel until a spark ignites it, forcing the piston back and generating the engine's power. The two dimensions of the piston chamber, bore and stroke determine an engine's actual size. Bore is the diameter of the chamber, and stroke is how far the piston travels within the chamber. These figures, combined with the number of cylinders, will give us an engine displacement, which is what is referred to when manufacturers say '2 liter' or '3.4 liter'. Most American cars up through the '80s used the cubic inch measurement of size, but now almost all engines are measured in the metric term liters.
