Could be the PO replaced the altenator with one off a gas engine that won't drive the tach.

If you look at the back of the alt. it should have a terminal marked tach.

Use a anolog volt meter and you should see the neddle bounce when the alt. is turned by just cranking, most digital meter won't read this pulse.
