Tim is on track with suspecting a battery problem

On an 8N the start push button grounds the small pin on the solenoid, so you can bypass the push button by grounding the wire that connects to the side of it. If that makes starter engage you have a push button problem, if still no start check back toward battery.

I have found a number of starter problems caused by bad or corroded battery ends, cables, and cable connections, especially the ground cable connection to the frame.

On my 8N I removed the short ground cable that connected to tool box frame work and replaced with a longer cable that connected down to the main frame.
