Quick answer is when in run the ignition switch needs to supply power to the ignition system. You need to get a meter and a diagram. The 63 most likely has a resistance wire for run and a full battery power feed to the ignition for starting that comes from the solenoid. Sounds like your run wire is not connected.

Ford resistance wire to coil is probably pink in color or pink with a stripe 1963 and 1964 had these as I remember with mine..
