Help identifing an engine.

I recently got an 1977 Cj5, 3 speed manual transmission and I've been trying to find what engine does it have, its a Mexican jeep so the VIN code that comes with it doesn't match the ones provided by Decoding Jeep CJ VIN Numbers
or any other web-page I've searched. The jeep has a plate that says that is made in Mexico for VAM and its VIN is: 7J6A11609 also the engine has the number 201448 stamped on it.

here are some pictures but i am new to the forum so i don't know if they will show.

Any help will be appreciated.
