If its the standard ford selenoid, there should be 2 large terminals for the power wires and 2 smaller ones. One is from the key and the other one goes to the ignition system because when you put the key into the start position there is no power going to the coil, except from that wire. This is only true on the really old aplications. The one on your 79 shouldn't have anything on the other small pin. It's still there just from an inventory point of use. These ground through the bolts so don't try and use it as a ground, I've seen it done. The best switches I've seen for your aplication was actually designed for a horn. A rubber caped, momentary, single pole. I think grote makes one that actually says start.

run one from a constant power source to the push switch and one to the starter solenoid from the switch this will only engage the starter you will still have to turn the key or wire in other switches for the ign. etc. i have push button start in my 5.0L BII
