IIRC, the solenoid is not part of the starter in that year. Its on the fender.
The "coil" is most likely the solenoid.
My mom had an 88 Taurus, that red little piece of **** fried 3 starters and one battery.
A buddy had one lock up on his 7.3 f350. Melting the contacts inside the starter leaving a pool of molten metal on the ground.
