Service Bulletin SB-201 from Paxton dated 7/1/64 says 66cc +/- 3cc, so I'll say #3, 68 cc since this falls into the tolerance range.

Sorry Paul, unless there was a change made regarding the size of the R3 engine's combustion chambers, you are INCORRECT!:(

So here is my source. When this is done, you can upload your source and we can compare. :)

Yep.....MUCH BETTER:D!.........My info, taken from a letter from the Studebaker General Service Department dated 1/8/63, indicates 61cc's. (possibly an earlier version of the head on the "A Series" 299ci  R3 engine?)

Your much later info indicates 66cc's.....So I'll 'split the difference' with you and call the answer 63.5 cc's, in hopes that someone like Brad Bez, who has rebuilt a couple of these engines, will chime in with the definitive answer to this AVANTI TRIVIA question.....Ed:)
