Similar, Ive ran 6 volt starters at 12 volts on plenty tractors over the years (farmer and tractor dealer) and never had any problems either. It can be a bit tough on starter drives and teeth etc since it does kick in pretty hard. Its one application where perhaps you dont want the big heavy honkin battery and cables which can help with the above potential problem as it always turns over plenty fast anwway.... Another problem is if its a magneto ignition with 12 on a 6 volt starter she may spin so fast the mags impulse assembly becomes disabled n shes trying to start at the advanced run timing woooooooo hoooooooo that may be 25 BTDC versus the typical TDC used at cranking/starting speeds lol

Ive never had solenoid problems either but dont want to be responsible if farmer Billy Bob burns something up grrrrrrrrr

Fun chat

Thanks fellas for the info.

I have an old AC-B that I use for mowing, 6 volt. I've been wanting to convert to 12 volt, but the only thing that I've been concerned with was the starter. Needing to get the coils around the armature rewound for 12 volt, but sounds like a non-issue.
