Reasons. And more or less CAN that for 8t
It won't harm the points.I used to do 12v conversions on 6 v cars all the time.The resistance wire is in the hot lead to the coil.When I did a 12v swap I used the 6volt starter on 12v no problem a resistor to slow down the wipers used a 12v alternator with a built in regulator a 12v coil with an internal ballast and changed all the bulbs and the radio.
think most the fergussens and old fords at least the ones ive worked on were pos ground didmt have them flopped did ya
I had a 12 volt battery hooked negative ground and positive hot in a 6 volt tractor. It ran surprisingly a long time. The ground overheated at one point and the battery blew up, and eventually no spark.
But so did my grandpa, so I'm not sure what was all going on. If I fix the tractor I might as well 12 volt it? I'm prob gonna have to replace all components anyway and the gauges are all toast from water damage.
