Had trouble starting so I replaced the starter cylinoid but it still won't start after charging. Any suggestions?

First off you need to be 100% sure what tractor you have. As Bob said last year for the 8N was 1952. 8Ns where made from 1948 to 1952 and the reason they where called 8N was the first year was 48 and the 8 came from the first year made. In 1953 they made one only model tractor and that was the Jubilee which had a valve in head engine and the 8N has a flat hear. So you need to tell us what you have so we can help you help your self

Wayne, you've got a REAL rare tractor there
'cause 1952 was the last year of the 8N!

WHY did you think the SOLENOID was bad? Did you replace it with the correct one?

(This is an unusual solenoid by today's standards, as it requires the little terminal stud be be GROUNDED to activate it rather than to have battery voltage applied as most solenoids of the more modern are require.)

Be SURE the transmission is in neutral and even better have a helper sit on the seat and hold down the clutch and brake pedals to be SURE do don't get run over if it cranks unexpected while you're troubleshooting. Then, jumper across the two large terminals with one lead of a pair of jumper cables, taking the solenoid out of the picture. Does it crank when you "jumper" it?

For more help, it would be a good idea to post over on the "N"-specific Forum linked below.

Maybe I'm missing something, but I believe that all Ford "N" series tractors (9N, 2N, 8N) did not have a solenoid. They had a push-type starter switch on the transmission cover next to the gear lever. What I think you have is a "NAA".

Yep. 9N's and 2N's left the factory with a manual starter switch. The solenoid thing started in 1948, with the 8N.
