Take a pair of pliers and touch the    two big terminals. The motor should turn over. If it doesnít the starter is either stuck on the flywheel or the starter is bad. That  solenoid was used on fords for a long time. There is not another solenoid on the starter.

If the wire at the starter is hold to the starter, is hot when you turn the to start. The starter is bad, or the bendix is stuck in the fly wheel.  Again hit the starter a couple times with a hammer.

Where the cable go to the starter   follow it the solenoid. There should the starter cable to one side of the solenoid and the battery power to the other side. There should be one small wire, that would be the wire to activate the starter. Take a pair of pliers and touch the two big wires, the motor should turn over. If it doesnít turn over you have a starter problem. If does turn over you have a solenoid problem. The little wire activates the solenoid at the key. With a test light ever time you turn the key to start that little wire at the I Solenoid should be hot. That little wire when to turn the start connect the two big wires to give the starter power.

Make sure the distributor is turning, pull cap and turn over. If turning over check the firing order.
