1st question: The Hundred Series Models are serialized differently than the N-Series. You wouldn't have both and a 741 an 841 s/n -here are some scans of the info. Also shown are the essential manuals for any Hundred Series Model. 2nd question: Dennis Carpenter makes and sells new reproduction parts and JUST8Ns also sells his stuff too. The 9N/2N start pushbutton mounted on the top shifter cover by the lever uses part number 9N-11450-B. You'll also need the gasket, p/n 9N-11467 as well. However, how do you know that the start pushbutton is defective? When depressed nothing happens? Might be a weak or dead battery - get it tested at a shop under load. Next, how is the system wired? Are you using the OEM 6V/POS GRN setup or as a 12V switch out job been done? Either way, is the system wired correctly for that setup? You will need the Essential Manuals regardless. OEM manuals have the 6V/POS GRN wiring. You will need special documents for a 12V switch over.
