Need to know the volume of the piston dish. Might find it by the part number if you don't know it, or by googling it. You can get semi-close by measuring the diameter of the dish and figuring the volume by using the formula for the volume of a cylinder: pi x r2 x h .
Then plug all your numbers into a calculator like this one
. Pay attention to the signs of your numbers as explained on the calculator site; different calculators vary on what sign represents a dished piston volume, for instance.
