Default starting issues

ok guys, i have a 79 f-250 crew cab 4x4, with a 400 engine, and a c-6 transmission. when i turn the key to the on or run position, the starter spins, and the engine fires. the problem is that the starter stays engaged, and won't disengage unless i turn the key off. this is a new wiring harness with everything connected correctly according to the directions. it has a new starter(from napa), and another new solenoid (this one from autozone..the most expensive one they had). anyone have any ideas? i can't wait to get this thing back on the road!!!!!!!! thank you for any help.

well the solenoid actuates the starter so do you have a bad solenoid
or incorrect wiring from the harness replacement
there's a way to check this with a multimeter but I don't know how

not many folks on the site lately, hopefully one will chime in with an answer
there are several that know this problem

I had an 81 Crown Vic that did the same thing. It was the ignition cylinder. I always had to turn the key slightly backwards to disengage the starter. I replaced it and all was well.

thanks, bikertrash, did that switch "feel" sticky, or grinding or anything out of the ordinary, as i suspect mine at this point, but it feels fine. it doesn"t bind, stick, drag or anything

No, it didn't bind or anything, was just wore out enough it made constant contact until I moved it back slightly.
