Question about 1991 Ford F150
Use a test light and check at the starter solenoid and see if the ignition start wire gets hot when the key is turned to start. If it does check to see if current then goes thru the solenoid to the starter. If it does check to see if current gets to the starter, if it gets to the starter the starter is bad. If no current to the starter or out of solenoid the solenoid is bad. If current does not get to the solenoid when switch is turned, check and see if the current goes thru the neutral safety switch (Clutch switch if not automatic). If the current doesn't go thru the switch replace the switch. If you are not getting current to the switch in the first place check the ignition switch. If the current doesn't come from the ignition switch to the safety switch replace the ignition switch.

Had tha same problem with mine. Lift up on the steering wheel as you turn the key. I know it sounds crazy but there is something in the column on those trucks that doesn't allow the key to engage.

This is usually a bad starter solenoid replace the starter solenoid it is located on the fender wall near the battery, be sure to disconnect the positive battery terminal before disconnecting the connection to the starter solenoid in order to prevent sparking that can cause a battery explosion.
