Stock timing on my Cummins 5.9 12V?

Hi folks, my name is Robert. I recently bought an Cummins 5.9 (6BT) 12 valve turbo diesel engine that came from a 1998 Thomas School Bus, same to this one:

The plate of the engine fell off, I have no idea what is the stock timing on this engine. Can anybody tell me how many degrees this engine has?
I believe is rated 160HP.

The engine sounds very very quiet and normal, compare to a 6BT froma Dodge RAM, this engine does not sounds at all.
I would like to set it to 18 degrees, but I do not know the current timing.
