Are automotive rocker/toggle switches 12v specific? Re: Are automotive rocker/toggle switches 12v specific? I'm putting the finishing touches on my build right now and last night I had the idea to put a hidden SPDT toggle switch on the ignition wire. This would allow me to A) run the cart like normal with a key, B) run the cart without a key if I need to and C) disable the ignition all together ...
6 Volt Car To 12 Volts - restore-an-old-car.com Replacement 12-volt horns are plentiful and cheap. Distributor and Ignition. The ignition points themselves will work with either 6v or 12v, but the points condenser should be changed. Buy a 12 volt ignition coil. They have more windings and work much longer.

6v Versus 12v Electrics - P15-D24 Forum - P15-D24.com and ... I see that this is also leading to the eternal discussion 6V vs. 12V. In my opinion 6V is as good as 12V for these cars. Most of the problems 6V system gets blamed are actually due to corroded contacts and failed insulation in the old car.
RV.Net Open Roads Forum: Batteries - Switch from 12V to 6V I have no room for a Group 27 battery. I have been looking at the 6v Golf Cart batteries. While the 12v batteries are rated at 80 amp/hrs, the 6v are rated at 220 amp/hours. That puzzles me. I was wondering if those ratings are accurate, and if so, can you just change from 12 v to 6v without harming your electrical system ?

12V vs 6V question - The CJ2A Page Forums A properly operating 6V system works fine, one of the major differences between 6v and 12v is the required gauge (or size) of the wiring. A 6v system requires a larger diameter wire to carry a larger amperage load. 12v components are somewhat easier to locate as well. Mine is 12v, but that's because it was that way when I got it.
Yesterday's Tractors - Converting from 6 Volt to 12 Volt In the real world, it is difficult to invest the time necessary to keep up on all these issues and 12-volt conversion becomes inviting. Still, the most compelling reason to convert to 12-volt is that your existing 6-volt system has serious problems and requires replacement anyway.
Converting a 6V car to a 12V...distributor and switch issues ... Switches, (your distributor is just a rotating switch) do just as well or better on 12v as 6v. Change the condensor, the amp guage will be fine, if you have a fuel level guage it will need to be changed or use a voltage reducer.

6 Volt to 12 volt HELP!!! - The Stovebolt Forums I had a 12v tach working fine on a 54 235 12v conversion with Petronix ignition, with no condenser and no ballast resistor (ignition voltage reducer). The coil I used was a Pertronix coil recommended for 6v and 12v. This has been working fine for over 12 years.
How to Convert from a 6 Volt to 12 Volt System | HotRodWires.com Many times, 6V bulb sockets will accept a 12V bulb with a little effort. Try removing one of the bulb tangs with a file or grinder, just be sure to go slow and check for fitment. Of course, there are also 12 volt replacement bulbs designed specifically for 6 volt sockets.
can I use a 12v coil in a 6v system? | Yahoo Answers You can't use a 12V coil in a 6V system. On older cars that used a resistor in the ignition circuit, the only time that full voltage was applied to the coil was during cranking. As soon as the engine starts and you release the ignition switch to the "run" position the resistor comes into the circuit and it cuts the voltage to the coil in half.
Is there a difference between 6 volt and 12 volt condensers ... Is there a difference between 6 volt and 12 volt condensers? AC Delco makes 2, one is part#D203, and one is part #D204...They also make one for a 1958 Volkswagen Beetle that I'm sure would be for a 6 volt system, and it looks like the right size to fit in my distributor
12v ignition coil vs. 6v coil - Farmall & International ... I agree with Bob. A coil designed for 12 volt use has around twice the LV primary winding resistance as a 6 volt coil. Since one of the limiting factors in point ignition systems is the amount of current the points must pass and switch and that amount is typically (older stock farm tractor coils NOT talkin high energy after market) around 3 to 5 amps, that means in a 6 volt coil: R = E/I = 6/4 ...
6 volt vs 12 volt headlight switch - The Stovebolt Forums Jim, me and Joy keep hearing talking also.

Condenser 6v vs 12v - Old Classic Car On a 6v system, can I use any condenser (6v/12v) or does it need to have been designed specifically for a 6v system? Does the physical size of the condenser make any difference, apart from obviously impacting whether it'll physically fit ? I've a feeling this has come up before, but in looking at previous condenser threads I've not spotted it
How to tell if an old motor is 6V or 12V? in General Board gary is right you need a 12 volt coil with internal resistor and a12 volt alternator you can get a one wire delco alternator at most starter and generator rebuild shops for around 40 dollars, i think the first 12 volt chev engine came out around 1957,as for as i know all the old 6 cyl engines were 6 volt, the first corvet had a 6 cyl engine with 3 upddraft carbs and it was 6 volt also, by ...
AC switch vs DC switch | AnandTech Forums: Technology ... I found an artice explaining that AC vs DC amperage ratings are very different, and that a switch that can handle 10amps at 120vAC might only handle 0.5amps at 120vDC. But what I'm trying to figure out for my greatly reduced DC voltage range, would a 10amp/120vAC switch be enough to handle the current?
How to Test a 12-Volt Condenser | It Still Runs A 12-volt condenser is part of an automotive ignition system. The battery provides power to the primary side of the ignition coil, which in turn produces high voltages across the secondary windings of the ignition coil. The voltage from the secondary winding is fed to the spark plugs as required to start the engine.

6 volt coil on a 12 volt system? | The H.A.M.B. cuz they can sell the 12 volts for more money. Unless it says internally resisted, a coil can be used on a 6 system straight from the ign, or on a 12V with a ballast resistor or a resistor wire like GM liked to use. 12V internally resisted coils will work from 12V straight from the ignition, they don't work worth a damn on 6V.

Please Note: This article is meant solely as a guide to help you determine some of the systems that may need to be changed in order to convert from a 6V to 12V electrical system.
6v VS 12v coil?? - ProBoards From my research i do believe there is a difference between 6v and 12v coils. I've read something about running an inline resistor on a 12 volt system to operate the 6v coil and make the engine run. But like i said my bike is a 6v system and i dont think i can make a 12v coil work on the 6v system. I just want ANY coil that will make my bike run.
12V system with 6V coil - no spark - tractorbynet.com Thinking this sounded like a dead coil, I picked up a 12V replacement. It said it didn't need the external resister that the original 6V coil used, so I bypassed it. Still no spark. The positive side of the coil shows 13 volts with the key on, so we are good there.

Making a 6v to 12v Conversion Easy! - how-to-build-hotrods.com If you are 6v negative ground going to 12v negative, you can leave the wiring to the coil alone. If you are 6v positive ground going to 12v negative, you need to switch the two wires on the coil. Negative to positive, positive to negative. For a 12v negative system, the ignition switch wire goes to the + terminal on the coil.
12v versus 6v batteries in a 36v system - Buggies Gone Wild Re: 12v versus 6v batteries in a 36v system One thing often overlooked when it comes to batteries is the RC (reserve capacity) rating. You'd be hard pressed to find 3 12V batteries with more RC than 6 6 volt ones.
Ignition Condenser - Does anyone really understand? - The ... K, understand about the condenser and what it does and the test is great to determine if they are good (or not). First time I have read/seen such a good explanation. Couple of things remain unclear to me though. A condenser is a condenser is a condenser right (taking out the OEM Delco vs China comparison)? No difference if the system is 6 or 12.
