I have a 1985 F150 that keeps using up Starter Solenoids. Can I get a more powerful solenoid or is there another problem that is causing this?

There is no power to a solenoid. The small ignition wire simply energizes a plunger so there is contact between the larger battery cables. (assuming that is still the remote mounted solenoid. Still basically the same thing with a starter mounted solenoid).
A weak battery can kill a starter/solenoid. Have it tested.
If you can get your hands on an inductive type ammeter you can also check on the current draw of the starter. Testing a starter on a bench when its free and not turning a motor does not much good.
Also make sure you have good power to the small wire that energizes the solenoid. Normally it should not drop bellow 10 volts while cranking. If it is then perhaps your ignition switch has some resistance.

1987 toyota camry was running wont start, will not crank, replaced starter twice in the last six months thinking that was the problem

Try moving gear lever from park to neutral then starting, if does not start check starter relay, solenoid or ignition switch, contacts could be worn

My 1987 for f250 was running when i parked it and it's ben sitting for six months and now clicks when trying to turn over.

First thing to try is to boost the truck,or put another "known to be good" battery in it.If it still just clicks then try putting booster cables from the post on the starter solenoid[follow the positive cable to it]to the other large post on the solenoid[in park or in neutral with the park brake set]and see if it turns over,if so replace the solenoid or repair the starter ground,if no go,replace the starter.Odds are it's the battery or the ground to the engine block.

Mini Wini on a 1987 Toyota. New battery. Won't start.

Well if you replaced the starter solenoid it sounds like something as simple as a bad battery connection,I would take both battery cables loose and clean them off with something like some 100-150 grit sandpaper or they make a battery and battery wire connection cleaning tool.
