Is there not a rule (or guideline)  that if you are within 3% of the max displacement for class you will be tore down ?

Not at Maxton there isn't.  And at Bonneville EVERYONE that qualifies for a record must tear down for a displacement measurement.

There might be a bit of truth, though, Charles -- in that (perhaps -- I don't run Impound) the method used for measuring displacement might be less precise if you're a good distance from the maximum allowed in your class.  If you're right on the doorstep with your claimed displacement -- or if one of the less-precise methods, such as pumping the engine with air or oil is used and you're close -- then a complete heads-off might be requested before you're certified.

At Maxton there's a chance that you might be measured, of course, perhaps as part of a protest, and there's also been talk about instituting random engine measurements, but I don't know if anything has come about yet.

Jon,  right on track,,,, if you are below the max limits the less intrusive methods "may" be used,,, if you are within the top 3% of the max,,, you are probably pulling heads... That's what I would bank on.

Thank you for the answer.  It is obvious to me then that a motor starting at 1352 would not qualify as reconditioning.
Look at my new RED HAT!!!!

I had the same thought/wonder, seeing as how I've got one of 'em, too.  Better stay in production, I guess.
