Question about Cars & Trucks
It IS true that starters are finicky beasts. They require fairly precise alignment, which sometimes includes the use of spacing shims. The starter must freely engage and disengage with the flywheel to start the engine, and a slight misalignment can prevent this process. You probably don't require a factory starter (OEM), but you should try adding one shim at a time until the starter engagement is consistently working. Good luck.

Ford does not put the solenoid on the starter itself, so then it is just a relay, usually on a fender. It will have 4 wires. Two thick ones from the battery and to the starter. And 2 thin ones from ignition switch and to ground.
