Does the starter crank the engine and it just won't fire off?

If it won't crank, maybe it's the neutral safety switch if it's an automatic or clutch switch if manual.

There's no ground directly to the starter. The engine itself has a ground to the battery. The clutch switch is to the clutch pedal undre the dash. Since you changed them out, you might have missed a wire somewhere. A friendof mine that does a lot of this type of work couldn't get a Crown Vic started and when I went to help, found a connector he missed. He does this a lot and missed one.

Re: motor swap 1993 to 1997

every thing looked like it was hooked up right under the dash.... i do have several sensors from the wire harness on the engine that i cannot find a place for them to go.....should all of them have a match. some one told me that there are sometimes extra just in case you wanted to put a v 6 in it or make it 4x4. man i feel like an idiot.

Don't feel like an idiot, even us regular mechanics make mistakes at times. Hope you track it down. Check those connectors and see if there's a Black/red wire. That's the normal color of the starter wire in the circuit.
