Starter stats engaged

1995 f150 5.8 257k

So I just replaced the water pump and some hoses, went to fire her up and the starter is now staying engaged. It eventually disengaged, but I'm wondering what causes this? The starter relay was replaced a few years ago along with the battery cables. Any checks I could run?
