Startix Problems was created by Terry Cockerell
I have a sheet on Startix modifications that was written by Don Beatty of San Diego. Essentially it shows how to disconnect the restart system and only have the starter main solenoid working.
Has anybody actually removed the restart solenoid and just used the box with the main solenoid in place ?
By removing the restart solenoid the cable can still be connected to the generator terminal for show.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I’ve done this modification in the past. Startix remains intact. You do have to take the back of startix off to change 2 wires and disconnect a third wire. You do have to install a hidden push button to activate the startix. You still have to depress the clutch before pushing your hidden push button to energize the startix and start the Cord. Works extremely well and you never have to worry about starter engaging while running and drop in output from generator. Probably not a medication for the purist but I prefer to drive my Cords.

Thanks for your comments. I am looking forward to driving my Cord again when the complete restoration is finished ................... early next year.
I covered about 10,000 miles in 5 years and hope to do a lot more.
I had thought the Startix would work without the restart function and without the need of a push button. Thanks again "UCONN".

As a follow up, I’ve attached a photo of the push button location. It’s out of the way. When I turn the ignition switch on, I continue to hold the key and my little finger pushes in the switch to energize the startix and starter. Switch pretty much out of view unless you crawl under dash. Having trouble attaching photo so might have to send separately

Thanks for the picture. I also prefer to hide any extra gagetry where possible. Two extra gauges I have a mounted on a hinged plate so that they can be put out of site for shows etc. One gauge monitors gear box oil pressure while the other monitors the temperature of the RH cylinder bank. No coolant passes through the inlet manifold.
You will also note a strip with LED lights between the dash and ash tray. These are gear selection lights which are a bit of a novelty but work very well especially with novice drivers.
Red is for reverse and Green covers the Go Gears.
