    Thanks for the good info.

    I specifically said that you can make a 3 brush genny into a 2 brush genny. I didn't say a 3 brush 6v genny could be made into a 2 brush 12v genny.. specifically.. though it MIGHT.

    all depends on if the shop can get the field coils for 12v in that size.

    they way you make a 3 brush genny into a 2 is to not use the 3rd brush and instead run the wire from the 3rd brush out to a regulator, vs a cutout.

    the genny should should know all this. if they don't.. I'd keep shopping...

    Your last sentence is the key... Thanks for the advice.
