as well, i have replaced more then enough fender mounted solenoids that would stay engaged to the starter and continue to crank after shutting the key down or the engine runs.

My F250 has two solenoids, one fender and one on the starter.

I know on the older explorers (91-94) thier is a slight difference between the autos and the manuals. I think if you put an auto starter in a manual then the gear will stay engaged after the engine fires. Doubt its what you have going on but?????

Do you have the shim that goes between the block and the transmission? That is what ford used as a shim.
