Id love to find a diesel power plant that would fit but ive been advised against it on the Nissan 1400 as there are not many options available. Newer model cars with tdi engines are pretty popular but to get one of them to fit would require more work than its work unfortunately.
There are many engines between 1.7L to 2.5L that wouldn't be too hard to fit into the 1400. Even the 1.3L Fiat Multijet could get the job done if you would consider something with electronic injection, and IIRC it has already been used in at least one RWD application in India before the phaseout of new Chevrolet car sales there.
