    There is no difference between a "12v" dizzy and a "6v" dizzy. After it's only a rotary switch. The capacitor across the points will be different so will the ignition coil. Just snaffle these from a 12v car.

    No worries at all. Changing out 6v for 12v is a doddle. The guy you want to talk to is Graham (59Floride). He's suffered through all this so you don't have to.
    The measure of your character isn't what you do when people are watching- it's what you do when they aren't watching.
