Looks like a lotus block to me.
There may also be a large 'L' where one of the engine mounts are.

The crankshaft number doesn't look right, certainly for the latter six bolt crank (from memory the number starts 23--). Is it six or four bolts that hold the flywheel on and is it lip or rope seal for the rear sump/crank seal?
The block appears to be Lotus, is there a cast L on the block where the engine mount is, next to the oil pump?

Hello, thank you for your help.
It is an 4 bolt crankshaft and there is an L of one of the engine mounts.
