The 12 volt conversion kit does not require a 12 volt generator. Is that correct?
 

The kit uses a different regulator that allows the generator to produce the 12 volts. So yes you wont need a different generator.

If you switch to a 12 V system wont it damage the coils and starter motor?
 

The coils can run on 12 volt, But when starting the car and you let a coil buzz for a little bit of time the coil will heat up much quicker then if you were on 6 volts. You do have time to do stuff but just dont let it sit there buzzing for along period of time. The starter can also take 12 volts, the bendix on the starter though will go through more wear and tear. The starter will be spinning faster by the time the bendix hits the flywheel. Some people try to slow this down by running thinner guage wires.

Will the 12 volt conversion have any effect on the coils? Like, will 12 volts damage them?
 The coils can take 12 volts no problem, the magneto produces more then the 12 volts when going down the road. The only thing you have to watch out for though is when you start the car and have one of the coils buzzing before turning the engine over. when the coil is in a constant fireing loop like that it heats up, and the 12 volts will have it heat up quicker then on 6 volts. So just dont let the car sit in that constant firing loop more then it needs to be.

I don't see a dropping resistor for the horn. Does the horn need to be replaced with a 12 volt horn?
 The horn can work with a 12 volt of 6 volt system If it is an original horn. If it is a reproduction horn you will need to have it rewired to work for the new voltage. Thank you for your question.

Hi, I have a model T with electric starter and this kit does not say anything about starters or if they need to be modified so I'm wondering if this will work with a 6 volt starter or would I have to switch/modify it to 12 volts?
 The starter can take 6 or 12 volts. The only problem with this is when it is switch to 12 volts it spins quicker then it would with 6. which makes it hard on the bendix assembly. some people try to come over this by running thinner guage wire from the battery all the way to the starter to try to cut the voltage down some so it wont spin so fast. Thank You Steve
