I had a '50 8N that acted the same way. If I didn't keep it running the first time it fired I had to use ether. It had good spark, "good enough" compression that it should run (over 100#), new plugs, points, etc, it just would not start. Finally went thru ignition again being VERY careful to get points & timing set EXACTLY TO SPECS, & it solved the problem solved.
A few thous off on points, couple degrees off on timing, & possibly loose distributor bushings can make a HUGE total difference!
