I recently bought a 1971 Ford B7000 school bus for a temporary traveling project. The seller didn't really know too much about buses or engines, but he said that the engine is a Cat 3208. After googling around about my engine, it doesn't look like any Cat 3208 engines I see on Google image searches, however it does look similar to earlier model Cat engines like the 1160 and 1150. I can't find much info on Google and have come to a dead end on figuring out what exact engine I have, so I have come to you guys with hopes that you might can identify it by pictures.

The reason Im trying to figure out the engine model is because I want to learn how to prime the fuel system in case we ever run out of gas. I have looked all over the engine several times and can't find anything that remotely looks likena priming pump.

Here are pictures of the engine and the tag thats on the engine: http://imgur.com/a/6QdAA

1145 DIESEL TRUCK ENGINE 97B02077-09172 Prime as you would any diesel fuel system using a external injection pump. Crack several or all fuel injection lines at the cylinder heads Pump hand priming pump or crank engine until fuel is coming out of lines. Tighten lines and it should take off. These engine will bleed out and start fairly easy.

Awesome! I really appreciate your help! Where's a good place to get an injection pump? Napa?
