Mike , It sounds like you have an 8 volt battery in a 6 volt system , It could cause problems in the future with coil and points burning out before there time . Most on this board say to leave it 6 volts and correct the problem unless you need 12 volts to run extra lights pumps ect.

Mike..... ..what Ron said.....

As BJ/8N/MT sez, there's a million ways to convert to 12 volts and some of 'em even work.

I'm a 12 volt advocate for the right reasons, that said, I haven't found the right reason yet to convert my eazy starting 6 volt 52 8N, and I know how to do it right. Remember the 6 volt mantra: "keep 'em clean, bright, and tight". And use hairy chested 'merican 00 gauge battery cables instead of them thar wimpy ferrin made 12 volt cables from K-Mart.

But if'n you just gotta convert to 12 volts, get a kit. Remember, frontmount 9N's are weirdly different ignition systems. And get an I&T FO-4 repair manual, $29 cheep..... ...Dell

First I would make sure that is what I "REALLY" wanted to do, or needed to do. Sometimes the cure is worse than the cold. Now having said that, if you go to the archives on this site, you will find all you need to know about converting to 12 volt. Attached is another site with a 12volt wiring diagrams, don't worry about the message on the main page. Just go to the left side and scroll down until you find wiring diagrams, then open that and you will find 12 volt conversion about 2/3 of the way down the page. Good Luck
