Move the meter's negative probe to the engine block, then move the positive probe down the large positive cable to whatever comes next, and measure again while a helper tries to crank the engine.
Ford uses a few different starter circuits. I'm in an on-going conversation with another Ford owner right now, also with a starter problem, so sorry if I get confused between the two vehicles.
Can you tell me if you have a starter relay bolted to the inner fender near the battery? If there is, the positive battery cable will be bolted to one of the two large copper studs. Be sure the cables on those studs are clean and the nuts are tight.
