My 65 Bird had the same problem. The ground cable was tight and the battery to starter was tight... so what was wrong? The actual starter cable, which is a stranded wire only had 2 strands that were making contact. The others were broken and not making contact. Check ;it

Come on now... what do the points have to do with the starter just clicking?

check the ground cable to the engine. and make sure u are getting 12 volts to the start side of the solenoid from the starter switch there is not much to a ford starter wiring make sure that the battery cables are clean have been working on ford for 50 years
