1989 Ford F-150 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Manual

I'm fighting with my truck. I've replaced the starter, the starter solonoid, the starter cable. I can get the starter to spin if I jump the solonoid, but when I use the ignition, I get nothing, although I'm getting power to everything else hooked up, fuel pump runs, everything seems to cycle, just not getting any power to where it needs to go. I checked all the indash fuses, but none of them were blown. Any ideas?

Are you getting power to the solenoid when you turn the key to the start position?

After posting my question, I continued to dig through the site and found another person with the same problem. It ended up being the clutch interlock switch thing on the firewall I put a bypass on it and no more problem, yay thanks for your help
