Priming a Perkins 4-236

Can anyone point out to me (a picture would be fantastic, but just a description should be sufficient) where I need to be on my 1973 Perkins 4-236 to prime it? I do not have any experience with these engines, and know that there must be a place with a screw to loosen and a little pump handle to pump until the air is all ejected and fuel begins to come out. At least every other diesel that I have ever fooled with had such a thing. But I cannot seem to find it, even though I have traced the fuel line from the Racor to the engine. I must be overlooking something!

John

That does indeed help! I downloaded the pdf file, and so now I have a manual, and page 46 shows what I need. Thanks!!
