Change the 6 volt generator to a 12 volt alternator. Replace the starter & battery with a 12 volt. Replace every single bulb on the vehicle with a 12 volt bulb. You may also need to replace the coil. Also replace any electronic devices designed for 6 volts with ones designed for 12 volts.

# How do you convert 12 volts to 24 volts?

  Alternating current or direct current?   For doubling the AC voltage, use a 1 to 2 step up transformer.   For doubling the DC voltage use 2 of the 12 V car batteri

# How can you convert 240 Volts to 12 Volts?

You would need a transformer specially made to do this. Of course, this transformer would need a rectifier, as I am assuming that you need 12 volts DC.

# How do you convert 5 volts to 12 volts?

You should use ULN2003 or LM398 driver for it

12

# Can you convert 120 volts to 12 volts?

Yes, you would use step down transformer.

12 Volts DC

# How do you convert 120 volts to 12 volts?

You buy a voltage converter or power supply that takes 120 VAC as an input and provides your desired 12 VAC or 12 VDC as an output. You need to know your current requirements

# Do you replace the coil from a 6 volt to a 12 volt when converting from 6 volt to a 12 volt system?

Yes. Since the coil is run at full voltage when starting 12 volts may be too much for a 6 volt ignition coil. It would be at about 8 volts when running. There is a starting re

# How do you convert 12 volts to 8 volts?

For a.c. you can use a transformer; for d.c. you can use a voltage divider resistor network. You can use a circuit that uses a transistor to regulate the voltage down to 8v by

# Can you use a 12 volt battery on a 6 volt system?

Sure you can. But consider what could happen if you did. If precision of time or speed was built into this 6-volt system, a 12-volt battery will make it work faster until some

# How do you convert 48 volts to 12 volts?

If both voltages must be AC then use a transformer with a 4:1 turn ratio.

# How do you convert 5 volts into 12 volts?

If it is AC voltages you need to convert, you need to find a transformer to do this job. Without knowing the application it is hard to guess what you are trying to do.

# How do you convert 6 0 6 volt transformer to 12 volt transformer?

Just use the two live 6 volt terminals across which you will find  12 volts.

# How can you convert 48 volts to 12 volts?

For an AC voltage you would use a 4:1 step-down transformer rated adequately for the necessary power dissipation. For a DC voltage you would use a solid-state voltage regula

with a resistor

No, you cannot.

# How do you convert 230 volts to 12 volt system?

With a Step Down transformer. But you will probably have a hard time finding a 240 volt unit. 120 volts units are readily available. It depends on how big of a transformer th
