1992 F250 not starting

I dropped the starter out and had it tested as well as retesting the batteries. They both tested good. I have checked both grounds and cleaned all the battery terminals. I have put a new power relay in and I wanted to make sure I was getting power to the post going to the starter when turning the key but it read zero. So I am not sure if it is a bad ignition switch or something else.
Does any one know if there is a fuse for the ignition switch or a way to test to see if it is bad
