Saw a part on ebay, it was to take 12 volts and reduce it to 6 volts. Where and why is it used?

It is probably the "so called" voltage dropping resistor (certainly mis-leading if not down right incorrect), often used on 6v tractors (6v ign coil) when running a 12v battery/charging system. It will only drop 6v at one specific current draw, something more or something less at any other load current. Very bad for most who do not have a clue.

That would be a resistor. It's used on a tractor that has been converted to a 12 volt battery system but still uses a 6 volt coil. However, it seems that achiving proper resistance is not as easy as that. There are better ways to make things work with a 12 volt system. I'm sure Dell will be along shortly to explain things further.

Most likely a resistor as already said, but it could actually be a voltage regulator.
Do you have a link to the part or an item number?

That's great, One more question for you, I'm trying to figure out a way to get away from 19" tires. Will the front Hubs of a 8N fit on the 2N. Or is their another way?

Dave, you might want to start your own topic on this question, but yes,
there are many ways to swap them out.
Many people used truck hubs and regular 15 inch truck tires/rims.
You have to match up the bearings, etc.
Don't scrap the 19's, someone restoring a tractor will want them.

Dave........understand yer problem with them skinny 19" tires. Yeah, you can change the 5-bolt WIDE hub of the 2N to the 6-bolt NARROW hub of the 8N. Bitta PIA.

More better you consider DIFFERENT 19" tires. Think dirt track motorcycle tires ...or... space-saver spare tires. You'll still haffta use inner-tubes. Tubeless tires won't seal on tractor rims. ........Dell
