Hello and welcome, it looks like a great honest buggy that you've bought there!

Its probably just me but I cant see anything  ;D Do you have a link to your photos ?

I had a 6 volt system years ago and switched it to 12 as its very easy to do, generator, battery, regulator and bulbs,
but I left the 6 volt starter in place, it literally tried to throw the engine out every time I started it up and never
burn't out, it's starting ability in sub zeeerrrooo temperatures was quite unbelievable  ;D ;-)up
