If it didn't start by jumping the solenoid bolts I would say the solenoid is not getting any juice. Starter, bad solenoid or wire to the starter. Did you check your battery?

if the ignition switch where bad you could still crank the eng. over by jumping across the solenoid. it would crank but not start. so i don't think it is the ignition. check for a bad ground / loose connection / or dead battery. if all checks out good then check the wires going to the starter and the starter itself.

try using a jumper cable to go from the battery straight to the starter. It sounds like the seleniod on the starter is bad. You have two with these fords. Could be the one on the starter if jumping it doesn't work.
