Oops. I had put the nvram in backwards.
Now, upon closer inspection I found why the seller couldn't power it on:
the power connector for the SCSI bay snapped off. (Reattaching it without
solder only brings up the 5V for logic, no 12V for the motor. If I had
solder or a spare connector like this I'd fix it myself)
