Spanish term or phrase: la cota máxima de repaso.
El contexto no es muy claro:

"Si, siempre que no se sobrepase la cota máxima de repaso."

"No se pueden repasar ni las válvulas, ni los asientos"

"Sólo es posible repasar las válvulas."

grinding limit
Explanation:
Sounds like they are talking about grinding valves. At first I thought about "lapping", but when you lap the valves you are smoothing the valve seats at the same time. However, you can grind valve seats.
