Re: What have you done on an old non-Model T vehicle.

No. Nor does it have primers, so it takes 3-4 revs to charge the cylinders to get it to kick. Usually takes 2-3 attempts, by then you’re wasted. Powering thru the compression strokes is a ?itch.
But when it starts, it runs great.

I’d keep it 6volt. Everything you need is available in 6v including led bulbs if you want.
Don’t think 12v gets you anything but conversion problems and ‘why did you do that ?’ questions.
