I have a 1963 all original 6 volt beetle convertible that doesn't want to consistently start. Use to be that if I let the bug sit for 4-6 hours, I had a 50/50 chance that I could get it re-started without pushing it. Changed the battery and then the starter. Problem didn't get better. Now I turn the key and the oil/volt lights dim; no action from the starter.
Someone told me that they had a similar problem and finally converted to 12 volt.
Is converting to 12 volts a "wise" thing to do? Anybody know what's involved with a conversion of this type?
