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

I found that when the key is in "on" position that the engine starts turning over but it will not start when the key is turned to start. Thought perhaps it was the ignition switch and changed both that and the neutral switch.
I have had two other people run the electric system and everything appears to be working and no wires crossed. I want to sell it as a running vehicle, not as scrap, but I cannot figure out this ignition problem.
It's possible that the solenoid is worn out or wired incorrectly. I'd start there.
If you don't already own a Ford, get one!
