On the side of the diesel injection pump, left (driver's) side of the engine.
Original pumps have a plastic 'mushroom' style knob that needs to be unscrewed before it can be pumped up & down. If yours has been replaced, it will probably have a small, round 'cap' shaped spring-loaded knob. Just press it down against the spring. You may need to pump it 50 times or more to get it bled enough to start.
Note: the old original style pump may start leaking when you try to use it - you'll need to replace it.
Otherwise, with the original style pump, be sure to screw the knob back tight when you're finished.

Happy Motoring, Mark
