No your distributor is not "6 volts". A distributor is merely a form of switch. A distributor doesn't care what voltage (within reason) it switches. Don't drop your coil voltage if you have converted the tractor to 12 volts or you will defeat the purpose of the conversion.
Tell me about your "points shorting out"?
If they are burning out you likely have a faulty condensor. If they are "shorting out" the insulation between the points is breaking down and the tractor won't run.
