The next time the starter just clicks have someone tap on starter with a hammer and try to start at the same time if vehicle starts replace starter. I believe when you checked the starter it tested good because the starter has a intermittent problem. Sometimes working and sometimes not.

did you change your starter solenoid? It is under the hood and when you turn the key it activates the solenoid and lets power go to the starter to crank the engine

I know the earlier fords had the starter solenoid mounted on the fender well but your year vehicle the solenoid is on top of the starter.

There should be a starter solenoid relay on the fender well. There is one on my 96, so I suspect there may be one on your 94. Try jumping it (just for a second) to see if the engine will crank. If it does, change the relay.

If stater solinold is on fender well make sure connections are nice and tight and also connection at starter and check starter bolts making sure they are tight.
