It looks to be some variety of Nissan FS5W71x, but what variety I couldn't say.

Without the front case half ("bellhousing"), you can't tell what engine it was bolted to. The diesel versions are special for the SD. For the LD, I do not know if they're different between the LD and L-gassers but I suspect not.
