No. Charging amperage is charging amperage whether 12 or 6 volt. THere may be a small gain, as with the correct alternator it will charge at idle.
If you have a well maintained charging system, a fully charged battery and most important a well tuned engine there is no real difference, especially in moderate climates. If tuned properly the Fords will start in half to one turn providing you know the throttle setting and how to use the choke properly. Get to know your machine. The choke is spring loaded for a reason. Has to do with an updraft carb.
You seem to be committed to converting your machine. You asked about about the benefits of a change over. It's moderately expensive, will probably help in cold weather and with a machine a little out of tune to start easier, I guess. Your machine, your choice. My 2N popped off in a couple of turns in temps down to 28* (above). Same for my JD M.
Get a wiring schematic detailing the changes, pay attention to detail and you won't have a problem. Good luck.
