Mike's "hill holder" works well on an 810 too. Except you do it leaning over so you can hold and squeeze the brake handle while using two feet on the gas and clutch.

If I manage to get mine working, I will stay with it as long as I can; I read in another post about the pleasure of having and demonstrating one more 1930's 'extra' our cars have.
Anyway, with the manual button and some manipulation on the cables, I can start and run the car.
I'm trying to locate if the trouble lies outside the unit itself, so can anyone tell me what should the voltage be on the GEN terminal when in idle?

Thats right, now I remember, 40 years has dimmed my memory except for the fright, there was no parking brake lever bolted to the trans, a Studebaker overdrive swap was in the in the car and the hillholder was disabled.
It still justified my joy on seeing the Cord Startix that in reality is a remote selonid that was generator switched. I can see where it would have been a wanted accessory in 1935 along with fingertip gearshifting.

Aris, do you have all the Eclipse (Bendix) bulletins on Startix operation and maintenance? I can fax them to you if you don't.

Hi Aris, maybe these will help, maybe the genernator puts out more output at idle than the original field coil generator, small adjustment, stepdown resistor?

I don't want anyone to think that I don't love Startixes. I have two NOS ones on my shelf -- one 6v and one 12v. I think that their use of totally computerless technology to do their job is highly praiseworthy and I enjoy following the path taken by the current as the several solenoids open and close.

I described what I do only because I don't want anyone who wants to drive his/her Cord to not do so for want of a working Startix. Or, heaven forbid, replace Startix with an old Ford starter solenoid as some of us have seen many times over the years.

CORDially,
