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.
