Advice on bus purchase?

We are looking at a 1994 GMC Bluebird with a CAT 3116 engine with 130k. We've heard mixed reviews on the CAT engine. Anybody have experience? They're asking 4k.

The 3116 is a good CAT engine and pretty reliable, but 4K seems a little high for an old bus with low power.

The 3116 is a decent and reliable engine.
The injection is a bit finicky and the injectors can be real a real pita.

Likely the indicated mileage is not correct. That's a $2k bus.
