Changed out my starter and solenoid switch after the truck running the starter after the truck was started last weekend. Luckily I didn't have to go anywhere and I have a business vehicle. It was 20 degrees out, and I just didn't feel much like fixing it at the time in my fit of rage. Got "genuine" motorcraft parts because they were slightly cheaper than napa. Truck started up fine, but when I stopped and restarted it, the starter seems to be a little loud and runs slightly longer than my turning the key. Thoughts?

Any chance of posting that much needed pic thanks

I've got one I can post easily, it's taken from behind the dash, that picture of
the rear axle is what's on the glove box door.

BTW I was somewhat misleading in an earlier post I made here about 80-82
variants, the seat belt buzzer is, in fact, located as was stated above the
glove box door and not closer to the center as I had said earlier, it's the
headlights-on buzzer that's near the radio (if equipped).

In any case, if your truck is 83+, all your buzzers are contained in one unit
(yours should be green, white or black, depending and will have lots more
wires) above the glove box like pictured here:

Those buzzers can be accessed without removing the insert. There's just enough room in there for someone without huge hands to get their fingers in there, and twist the buzzer out of the slot it's held into. It will then drop down far enough to unplug it.
Putting it back into place almost requires pulling the insert, though.......

It's nice not having that annoying buzzer come on every time you open the door with the key in the ignition, isn't it?

might need to shim out the starter a bit.. I just used some washers on mine but there are probably spacers actually designed for that =).. either that or take that starter back and get another new one

Sounds like its not able to disengage from the flywheel quick as it should.

Does your buzzer do "Headlights on"? I'm looking for one of those for my '85 F150. I'll buy it from you if it does...

I thought the shims were used if you were getting a grinding noise? This isn't a "metal grinding noise", it's just the starter running slightly longer. I do understand what you are saying though.

I drove the 1000 miles from Copperas Cove Tx to Firestone Co yesterday and the truck did great. Shes got alot of heart for bein a 25yr old farm truck. My starter runs longer then it should but I think its cause my ignition switch is worn out.
