Yes, converting back to the OEM 6V/POS GRN setup is doable providing you have all the correct components -generator, voltage regulator, battery, wiring et al. Shortcuts are not an option. Are you certain you are using the correct starter Bendix? Are you certain your 12V setup is wired correctly? I'd verify what you have now is correct before making any changes. I suspect something else is wrong.
