Re: 86 bronco turns over in 'on' but won't start

Make it extend by hand. If it travels out too far then the snap ring on the end of the armature shaft is out of place or missing. This can make it stick in the ring gear making it crank when you turn the key to "on". Then inspect the ring gear all around for bad, rough teeth. HTH
I dissconnected the one (1 red & light blue) wire going to the solenode and connected a test light to the wire. When I turn the key to the on position it lights up which tells me it is giving juice to the starter in the on position. When continuing to turn the key to the start position there is nothing. I will pull the starter if after knowing this you feel it may still be the starter? Thank you for your time! Randy
