I will have to get a manual then I do not have one . Thats why I was trying to find a wiring diagram. Just could not find one for an 8N with the mag. Would it be the same wiring as an older 9N that may have had the mag?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI expect that the wiring difference is that on a distributor engine, a wire runs from ign sw to coil, which will not be needed with your mag. You need the one wire from your mag to a kill switch, which would be grounded by the switch to stop engine. You will need to add that switch somewhere. You might be able to re-purpose the aforementioned wire in your harness to connect mag to kill switch.

So if I just ran a wire to a toggle switch connected to the frame it would be fine? Then just wire nut and tape the extra wire on the harness. Or could it be done through the key?

Mag has no on or off. It is always ready to provide elec to plugs all it needs is to be spun, turned. In one way it does have a off and that is a kill switch that is not a switch but a piece of metal that is attached on the mag and is pressed aginest the metal housing and makes the mag short itself out. If it does not have one you can kill the motor by putting the tractor in road gear throttle to idle and easy out on the clutch slowly and kill it. You can also just turn the fuel off. Don't be tempted to choke the engine to kill it as gas will lay in the cyl and can get to the sump.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeWell, if you really want to....................

Your key will have no function with a mag, so you could simply not connect the hot wire to key sw and instead use it as your kill switch to ground the mag. Of course, now OFF would be RUN and ON would be STOP.
