The cluch safety switch us located on the cluch peddle and they wouldn't have touched that when servicing the cluch. I would check the starter relay by changing it with the horn relay if it still doesn't work it is probably a bad starter or connection on battery.

You need a new clutch. The clutch disc has worn out, now it's slipping on the flywheel. Clutch kit: new pressure plate, new clutch disc, new clutch release bearing, and new crankshaft pilot bushing- about $150-200, somewhere in that range..
Have you checked the positive and negative connections at the battery, and are you getting voltage at the starter and solenoid when the key switch is in the start position ? Have you checked the clutch safety switch ?
Check the clutch adjustment. If your system uses a clutch master cylinder, the release components are suspect.
Your description indicates that the clutch is not fully releasing. Worst case is new clutch and both bearings....not the end of the world but more costly than release systems..
FORDS ARE OK if the noise u are hearing is going away when u press the clutch it sounds like it is comming from the gearbox. the gearbox stops turning wheh u hold the clutch in is the gearbox noisey when u dive it 1-2-3-4 this will let u know if the gearbox is worn
is oil level ok ? check it and transfere case
Check the clutch fluid (whiteish plastic resivour, drivers side firewall). My 88 Ranger has a slow clutch leak and I need to fill it maybe once a week. It went almost dry one day and I couldn't get it into gear (refilled it and all was ok). Also, sometimes if you don't put the rubber diaphram in correctly the clutch will feel funny.
Or your clutch could be gone/wornout.
