Ford Jubilee Tractor start problems

I just bought a 1953 Ford Jubilee NAA tractor. It ran fine for an hour and then I let it sit for 2 hours. It then started up again fine but it died after running for several minutes. I accidentally pushed the start button without disengaging the clutch. Since then, when I try to start it properly, it does NOT turn over. It just clicks. I tried to jump the battery because the manual states that when you push the start button without disengaging the clutch, unnecessary current load is placed on the battery and starting motor. It still wouldn't turn over after the jump.
If you have any suggestions, please let me know what I can do to fix this.

David, IMO you did your starter no harm by a single event of pressing the starter with out depressing the clutch. Depressing the clutch just takes some of the extra drag off the starter by eliminating the transmission main drive gear rotation and anything that might be hooked up to the pto. It is also another safety. I've started my Jubilee and N many times over last 20 some years with not pushing the clutch.
You do not say if the tractor is stock 6 volt or modified. You do say it "clicks". What "clicks"? The starter or the solenoid? Is it possible that the "click" is spark jumping?
Might try jumping directly to the starter. MAKE SURE THE TRACTOR IS OUT OF GEAR. If you jump directly to the starter with no action then you do have a starter problem. Good luck, ray
