Default Buckeye Diesel, 5-cylinder, 7-1/2 X 10-1/2

I'm planning to work on a 5 cylinder, air start Buckeye diesel engine. At least one of the heads needs new gaskets, so that's where we will start. I want to try and help get the engine back to properly running at Rough &Tumble.
The oil and fuel lines look alittle jerry-rigged, if anyone has pictures of how it's supposed to be plumbed up that would be nice.
I love to have a manual to have a better understanding of what I'm getting into but I doubt I'll find a copy of that.
Any suggestions on where I should look would be greatly appreciated. I was given permission to start working on it after cleaning around it and putting some scaffolding up to easily get to the Head. Plan on working on it then regardless but it never hurts to ask for more information to work more efficiently.

There were several Buckeyes, but if that looks marine try oldmarineengine..
If it could be mining, industrial etc try Hist Const Eqpmt Assn (HCEA) ; their forum generates little traffic but they have an extensive library that may well have manuals etc...

The Model J was the smallest Buckeye made. I was just sent some pics of a Model J but that one is probably as rough as yours and it doesn't have the covers off to see the injectors and lines.
