If your running 12 volts to a 6 volt coil it will get hot and burn up shortly. Either install a ballast resistor inline to the coil or get a true 12 volt coil.

ok so far your advise has been very helpful Jason thank you. so if I get a true 12 volt coil will my points work the same? also near as I can tell I'm running on a 6 volt positive ground system so what your saying is I can use a 12 volt batt and upgrade the coil and the rest will be fine and the generator will work on that as well? I need help in this area of the tractor

6v generator will never charge a 12v battery. A 6v ignition will burn up with 12v gong in w/o the correct resistors. We/you need more info. The 12v alternator and coil need resistance to get it correct for a 6v coil. With the correct coil you don't need the resistor. You'll need to rewire to accommodate the change. Maybe someone will get you a diagram or look it up. Which way do you want to go?
