Stick of dynamite or high speed lead poisoning to put it out of its misery.

All kidding aside, i would check the regulator, the low oil sender (if it has one), and the fuel system, including the gas cap - make sure the vent is open. Do you have fresh gas in it?

If it has "gas" in it, that is a problem - I'm pretty sure that set is powered by a 3 cylinder diesel.
