bought a fixer upper: it’s running on my hoist, nothing is hooked up except Lp and battery; should I have power at the hour meter with in running?? If yes then point me in the right direction to fix it ; wires are all good; followed  them all back to source

Yes, the hour meter should have 12 volt dc when the engine is running or the run circuit is energized.

So where do I start to diagnose the issue??

If you can find a serial number on the unit we may be able to look up a wiring schematic, you will only have power at the meter when it is cranking or running, start at the meter and check for voltage and work your way back to each junction or connector, if you have battery voltage at the meter and no meter action then the hour meter is toast. If everything else is working I wouldn't be too concerned about the hour meter but you could find an aftermarket item to wire in.

If the unit is running, then you should have 12vdc to the hourmeter (If it is a factory installed meter) The wire number might be 14 and it powers the fuel solenoid and the distributor. You can disconnect the wires on the meter and run 12vdc to to check operation.

I chased the wires back to the blocks; there is no power there either. 3047155 is serial #. 00752-4 is the model # . I’m thinking the alternator is toast ???

You did you say the unit runs.
If so, are you checking for voltage with unit running??

Yes it is running; I’m going to check ohms , maybe bad ground

If it's running, wire 14 has to be energized with 12VDC. You may want to check your meter also.
