Just to clarify, I also have an 86 F150 standard exhibiting what sounds like the same problem. On my unit, power is still applied to the starter motor with the switch turned off. I'm reasonably sure that there is not a shorted wire.
????Is the starter switch on F150's spring loaded or solidly controlled by a rod?????
I am suspecting that it is spring loaded and the old grease and dirt is causing the switch to stick in the engaged position.
Thanks for any help.

SOURCE: starter stays engaged
The starter relay on the fender is the most common cause of this condition. ,It is on passenger side feder in the engine compartment, it is round and the positive cable of the battery goes to it,

It sounds like a sticky bendix on te starter. Take the starter off and clean the bendix with electical spary work the bendix back and forth while spaying with the cleaner. Make sure there is tention in the bendix when you push it ahead it should want to go back.
