Maybe you didnt find it there. But I did!!!!
There is pictures of the zmz523 all over it,all I did is do a search n typed zmz523 engine,Packard did use it,also trucks used it,granted it wont be the same as the Russian copy,Packard designed the engine with American standard inch system n what he has got is , Im sure all metric.
By the way I coulnt find any 80as or later gasolene stuff in the Packard site.
The engine he has IS a gasolene engine.
It ha a carburator n a distributor in it.........
You will also find information about the differences between the Packard and the Chaika engine there.
Go LOOK!!!
