The rev counter "should" read something when cranking,
No reading would make an instant suspect of the CRANK ANGLE SENSOR.
These sensors can fail completely,
But they can become intermittent due to heat build up.
My test would be to plug in a scanner and read live data for RPM on crank.
Diesels need a minimum of 180 RPM to fire,
If yours reads zero on the scan tool and zero on the rev counter then it'll never fire.
So a new CRANK ANGLE SENSOR is needed.
