I feel like I am getting somewhere now. Here is what I discovered.

Starter switch works, but I believe the solenoid I bought is bad or the wrong one. The small prong location on the solenoid has an "s", assuming for start inscribed on the solenoid.

So I found the original 3pt solenoid and tried it (small prong has "I" inscribed on it. I hooked it up the same way and I got a click (coming from solenoid) when I pressed the starter button. So I proceeded to hook up the starter wire to the other side and I still got the click but its like I am not getting power transferred to the starter wire.

One other funny thing is that the starter button will supply power when pushed to the solenoid regardless if the ignition key is turned on or off.

Getting closer but still not there!

Well you have to back up a tad bit. The factory starter button is a ground type set up it does not give voltage it supplies a ground which is how the ford solenoids worked on the old ford tractors. If you do as I said and try the cable to cable thing and if the starter spins your sure it is a solenoid problem if it does not spin then a starter problem. If you need help that may hit home better e-mail me an I will then give you my home phone number. Found a long time ago some times that help a person more then what I can do here and have had many call me for one on one phone calls
