I figured it out. A minor difference with Chevy and Ford starters. A GM has the solenoid mounted directly on the starter, a Ford has it up on the fender (in this case) next to the ignition module. So if you're pressing the coil wire down on said module and the solenoid has some corroded connections, you could mess a delicate connection up. Until now I had assumed all starters had the solenoid made right onto them (my chevy's and toyota's do).
