Just looked at the new starter I got for a 96 5.0 f150 that I ordered for my swap and it has the large and small connections.

Yes, that's the solenoid/relay unit in the smaller cylinder

Larger post on the top connects directly to Battery Positive terminal.
Although on a conversion it can connect to the old fender mounted starter relay post, but on the SAME POST as the battery Positive cable, not the opposite larger post as it may have been before.
You do this because older vehicle would still need Power distribution from this post, the other wires on that post still need to be connected to battery positive as well

Smaller post on solenoid/relay actives it, so is connected to the ignition switch, Ford used a Red/blue stripe wire for this many many years.
It connected to the "S" small post on the fender mounted relay, this wire can be extended to be connected to small post on solenoid/relay on starter motor

1999 and up Rangers used a Yellow/blue stripe wire from the engine fuse box to the smaller post on the solenoid/relay.
This comes from the added anti-theft Starter Relay in the engine fuse box
This relay needed to be grounded by the PATS system to work.
1999 has a PATS Module above glove box, you need to find that module and cut the Dark Blue/orange stripe wire and then Ground it inside the cab, this doesn't hurt PATS system just takes the No Crank off the table as part of the anti-theft.
It would still have no fuel pump or fuel injectors if wrong key was used
