Thanks for your input guys !
The Startix is working fine Brad, I also have the complete troubleshooting instructions for it; I only get this problem when the generator is not charging after sitting for a long time, something ?normal? for our Startix. The generator eventually will ?kick-in? but only when I rev-up the engine, something I don?t want to do immediately when starting the car after a long time.

I will try out Ed?s suggestion from the manual, to see if the car can start in the left ignition position, otherwise I will try to jump from right to left position, to see if it can be done, without shutting off the engine.
I have an old-timer electrician coming over to look into the regulator, to hopefully pinpoint which wire in there is the one needing the flash.
I?ll be posting my findings, Thanks !

Ok, here is what I got. On Ed?s suggestio, to see if the car can start or run in the left ignition position, the answer is no, at least the way mine is wired.
As to flashing the generator, I was shown how it'ss done inside the regulator, by manually making contact 2-3 times on the cut-out relay; it's the one with the thick-wired coil, in the rear position. Simple enough I guess.
I'm also sending both the generator and regulator to a workshop, to do a proper job on adjusting the springs of the regulator that seemed not right.
I hope this works! But i wont know for sure till the next time I start the car after a few months......

How about just cleaning the generator armature and brushes up and see if that helps with the idle output? The modification to eleminate the hold out coil really doesn't work unless you use a push button or key start switch.

Hi Stan! Knowledge goes hand in hand with experience and we are all fortunate to have you and others like you, willing to help us out ?... Thanks also to the active members that got this forum going ??..?? Long distance calls are expensive and inconvenient, overseas ones are certainly both, I know !!!..... Anyway, once more you were so right! It seems when I first worked on the generator some years back, I did not put the brushes in right ?. .. this time a had it rebuilt by a local old-timer electrician and now the whole electrical system ?including the Startix- is working just fine ! Thanks !!!!!!!
