Question about 1986 Ford F 250
Check the ground wire, also check the both battery post wires connectors making sure you getting good connection. I hate to say but, from my experiences sometime even brand new battery and starter fail, give this also a try, get a jump from someone that also have the same cranking amps battery and lets test your battery and the ground, hook the positive cable straight to the positive post to your battery and negative to the motor metal ground (DO NOT CONNECT TO NEGATIVE BATTERY POST) and try to crank the engine and see if that work, if not then take that starter back out and test the solenoid buy connecting using jumper cables and connect it straight to battery using a jumper cable by connecting to the starter to see if your solenoid working by quick contact touch using the positive clip acting as a switch. keep in mind your solenoid will have a positive and negative grounding post and make sure you hook the cable to the right post. if the solenoid engage with the starter turning then is not your starter, it will be you ground connection not getting good contact with the starter. also check your igniton switch, its wear out over time and cheap to replace.
