My ‘46 2n generator died! 6v battery is shot! It’s winter and cold! Looking for a quick fix! Can I do this:
Can I just put a 12v battery in ? ? ? No lights, so no real draw on the 12v battery other than for starting. Would I need to change to a 12v coil and or change the points, add a resistor or what? I use the tractor so seldom that when done, I’d just put it on a trickle charger or auto charger. I know the wiring and starter will handle the extra voltage! I have plenty of 12v battery’s!
