Default Electrical issues-- not turning over

2 weeks ago i blew my track bar bushing, hit a curb while towing the boat(got cut off)... while waiting for the new bushings from Carli Suspension i parked the truck for 2 weeks...

i started the truck once in the 2 weeks, started fine... installed the new bushings, went to start the truck, got a single click of the solenoid. volts where low so i put it on a charger for a couple hours. went to start again, nothing, just a single click... checked the solenoid, it was good. checked the starter, it was good. checked wiring that i could, it seemed good.

we even went as far as running jumper leads down to the starter, nothing...

im now sitting here scratching my head to my skull trying to figure this out...

i even went as far as checking to see if the motor was locked up, turns over freely...

im not too good with electrical stuff if it aint in a boat...

to recap: when trying to start all i get is a single click... does not turn over...

but you say you went straight to the starter, hopefully from another battery and not the one in the truck

a bad battery even one showing 13 volts wont start an engine

i grabbed the battery out of the expedition... we tried just about everything i could think of, still got nothing, swapped out the starter for my spare, nothing, swapped out solenoid, nothing... checked all grounds, nothing.

the battery in the f150 is a new(4 months old) Interstate marine cranking battery, there was no difference between the 2 batteries when testing...

Did you check your grounds? Try running a jumper cable from the (-) of the battery to the block.

I called brother-in-law and told him what you have done
he said theres no reason either starter would'nt turn, putting power straight to it

his other option was and he's not sure on your '95 but to check fuses and relays
there maybe a fuseable link thats bad

there was a fused link that burned up 2 years ago after a day of mudding, i replaced that wire with some heavier gauge cable left over from rewiring my dads boat, havent had any problems since... i did find what appeared to be another fused link that looked a little corroded/burned so i ran a new wire, still no difference...

well... we found another burned wire, and had my dad help me figure it out... after replacing that wire, we're getting volts and amps to the solenoid, and down to the starter and we determined both starters i have are junk...

so the next question, should i go with an OE starter, or go with an upgrade?
i dont mind spending extra coins on better stuff
what you think joey?

Did you try pulling codes? This truck maf?
Doesn't the 92+ have maxi fuses?
Did you stick either starter in a vice and hit it with straight 12 volts to make sure they both work? The chance of them both being bad is slim, but you never know.
Edit, I posted after letting the computer sit so I missed the update haha.
Personally if you can spend the coin get an upgraded hi torque starter. One with gear reduction or something. Summit and such sell them for a decent price.

You can convert to the smaller gear reduction starter pretty easily, actually, lemme look up some info for ya.

Edit: Your F150 should already have the newer style, does it have the solenoid on the starter itself or on the fender?
These starters would work great if not, just need to do a tad bit of wiring changes, nothing major.
