94 7.3 IDI won't turn over

Hello everyone. I hope that somone out here has the answers for that I'm struggling with. I am in the process of buying a 94 7.3 IDI f-250 that hasn't been run in about 7 months. He thought it just needed new batteries so he charged the ones that were on it. If started up and ran for about 2 minutes then stalled out. Not enough juice to restart but he noticed that the fuel filter light was on. So he replaced the fuel filter. I brought him the new batteries this morning and now it won't turn over. He has tried bleeding the air out of the system from the filter bleeder as well as from the number 1 cylinder and number 8. Still nothing. He thinks it just has to much air in the lines. I hope that is all it could be. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. I need this truck up and running. Hope I get some help fast Thanks

When you say turn over do you mean start? or do you mean crank with no start? If it cranks without start, are the glow plugs working right? You can take a voltmeter and see if they are getting power to each glow plug.
