Yeah!!! Residual magnetism in the pole shoes!! You know, the metal disks that hold the field coils in place. Ther has to be some magnetism in there to build a charge to close the pionts in the regulater to start the charging system. That's why you have to polarize the system. On an A or others where the reg is accessable, you just pull the cover and close the points to polarize.
