Amanda and Tommy, cross over the starter soloind and see if it tries to crank over. Check to see if are getting voltage from the battery to the starter. Sometimes it seems ok but has a bad connection. If you are Bench test the new starter. Even with something new don't work the way they are suppose to. With some older fords some starters have shims that move the starter away from the bellhousing so it works right.

Lol, I am so sure this has been answered by now, but just in case someone else has this as problem. My 1976 F-250 will play dead too. Sometimes when you have put it in park, something is not making good contact, if you push up on the gear shift & make sure it is "Fully" in park, she fires right up. She's a tease, lol.
