Not a real big deal. 12V Battery of course. First thing replace the light bulbs. or you will have ruined good 6V bulbs plus possibly fog up the reflectors. Then replace the coil to 12V coil, or put a resistor in between the coil and hot wire comming from the ignition switch on your 6V coil. I am assuming you have the 12V regulator mounted on your 12V Generator. That's it you do not have to rewire anything.

I'm sorry Kevin, but I have to strongly disagree with you. I have been running 12V on 6V starters on many units for over 20 years. A Starter and Generator rebuilder told me back in the fifties that the windings in a 6V starter are much heavier than the 12V starters. And will last longer than a 12V starter. It makes sense since you have to use heavier battery cables on 6V because it doesn't have the push that 12V does. I would guess that anyone that tells you differently is trying to sell you a starter.

LOL No Del I smoked one just this year on my wd45 just this year after some one had converted the tractor over with a new starter I didn't think to look at the voltage on it. I just assumed it was 12 volt because that was the old battery in it along with the coil and new starter some one replaced. Boy did it turn fast too. Almost like an air starter on a truck.
So I based that more on experience is all.

My starter guy told me the same thing Del. He's been doing it for 40 or 50 years, so I don't doubt what he says.
