Probably not as there are 2 different motors
you can pull them both out , check the starter nose for orientation, bolt holes , body shape , no of teeth on the pinion

check out the ford forums on line they'll help you to diagnose what i believe is a starter relay problem. It is on the pass inner fender, the red batt wire goes to it....there are ways to jump certain terminals on this relay/solenoid that will check it out for operation, but I can't discuss that here...hop this is of some help..pappy

check battery terminals for corrosion. clean with a wire brush. check starter terminals for corrosion and clean as nessarray. if the connections between the wire and terminal connectors are corroded you may need to replace that wire and terminals.

SOURCE: my ford truck will not start.

You don't state if the truck cranks or not I assume it doesn't since the starter was replaced. You need to check the solenoid and see if it gets current when the key is turned to start. If it does, does the current go thru and to the starter. If not replace the solenoid. If you get no current to the solenoid check the nuetral safety switch or clutch switch and see if the current goes to the switch and then thru. That will tell you if a wire is broken or the electrical part of the ignition switch or the safety switch is bad. Good Luck!!
