Question about 1991 Ford F250
When starting truck in cold weather the starter sticks to the run or start position and when I turn the ignition back and forth the starter is in the run position I can even take the key out and the starter Is sticking in the run position I have replaced the steering column with a used one from the junk dealer and installed a new ignition hoping this would solve the probem only way it will shut off is when the starter burns out also as this is all going on the starter sounds like it is grinding with something probably the flywheel? although after this stops during warmer weather the truck starts fine.

Lube the starter pinion with graphite in stead of oil or grease for cold weather

SOURCE: ignition will not start truck
There is a sliding actuator that is in the steering column. It is spring loaded, this is what provides the resistance when you turn the key. It's what the rod that connects to the key lock assembly leads to. The bad news is that you have 2 choices, replace the steering column or destroy the cover to get to it. Sorry to tell you that.

if it didn't shake before the starter change,and the black marks were not there before,you need to see if the positive cable is getting hot to the touch,double check the large battery cables going to starter that they are on correctly ,dont go by color of wire ,visually follow each wire to starter to make sure its a ground or hot one,last possibility
would be a dead short in starter.

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.
Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.
Let me know the result please,
