    this question needs to be rephrased. (wire up a starter coil) the coil isnt associated with the starter , think of a solenoid as a electric plunger that moves when you energize it , which push'd your bendix into the flywheel and turns the engine.

    there should be a big positive main cable supllying power to the starter that connects to the solenoid and there should be another wire on another smaller terminal that runs up to your ignition switch. the starter is bolted to the ground .

If you turn the key and the engine spins but doesnt fire try checking the timing for it to make spark at the time you need it to ,if it's out it wont catch and run or check for spark at the spark plug make sure it has spark use a dummy sparkplug in the boot and hold it on a ground and crank engine look for a blueish spark and if you have bare hands holding it you'll get a good jolt (insulated pliers)

    it is a solenoid attached to the starter not a coil ,does it spin the engine at the right speed to normally start ?is the battery full charge.does it have gas in the tank and is it getting gas .an engine needs gas and spark before anything will happen

That's a tough one. Ford doesn't print full wiring diagrams. What they have is a book called an EVTM that has all the circuits broken down in it.If you need a couple of circuits, I may be able to help. But if you want the whole book,you might try ebay and search for a dealer selling out? You can also try , they may have a lead on one. Good Luck.
