I will chime in with Tim and Bruce: I have a 52' 8N, it is still 6V, and it starts, runs perfectly. It is all original with exception of a few replacement parts. I think the 6V system is perfect for these old tractors. Plenty of starting power, and I guess I just like it in original configuration.
I have heard and read of so many glitches of conversions and all the issues they seem to have. I am sure it is due to improper conversion, or shoddy work. My N sits most all winter in extreme cold Montana winters, and when "I thaw out enough", I go out and on one turn over, it starts. I am not going to mess with what already works great. And, I really don't need a 12V "8 Track Player" on my N. Ha, ha.
A friend of mine has an older (1963) pickup, and he took his granddaughter for a ride, and she got in and said, "Oh! Wind up window", Hmmm.
