Just becase that works doesnt mean the switch is bad. It could mean a bad switch, cut wire, bad neutral safety switch, or a bad starter solenoid. Also some 87 fords came with a starter circuit interupter located at the base of the instrument panel.
Put +12v to the +s terminall of the starter relay passanger side of the compartment, about half way from the battery to the firewall, close to the jack storage area. If it turns then the starter is good.
Let me know what you find.
