It’s definitely not a bandido engine.   It looks like it’s a model 5 kart engine.  The D means it’s a 250cc and the 5 at the end indicates 5 speed.  They made this engine over a long period of time so that’s why it has the mid 70’s barrel and head.  They may have started production of that engine in the mid sixties and continued it sporadically over the years.  I’d guess given the higher than 1000 serial number that it’s a later model produced in and around 73-74
