Why don't you get the 6V system working properly and avoid all the conversion mess??

Just did a 1949 IHC KB-3 truck and kept the positive 6V ground system. What you should do is focus on good grounds and adequate wire size.

I also update to breaker-less ignition and add an alternator as these are both available in 6V positive ground versions now. With these two updates you won't have any problems and the 6V battery will stay charged compared to the old obsolete generators.

A little off subject but really consider installing a 6V electric fuel pump too. Make's a WORLD of difference and the truck starts at the first touch of the "Stomp Pedal"!
