Look for an unhooked or blown Fusible link...should be around the solenoid main cable area...

Ground

[size=3]Doc here

A dead short would produce a massive spark when you tried to hook up the battery...

Not A Ford guy at all, but I think Ford may have used Fusible links on ground too...Check for that.

Also Make sure your ground goes from the Battery to the Starter housing or Block close by, then run another Battery ground Cable from that ground to the Frame.

To test run a Ground from the battery to the area of your fuse box. Turn the key on and with a meter check ANY fuse to the ground wire, If you get a read, your missing ground.

To test for power, just move your wire over to The + side of the battery, and the terminal marked BATT on the fusebox, if everything works as advertised, your missing power (fusible link)
