140 quit, wont start

I asked this question once before but then got it running, my question is this, will a 12 volt coil work in a 6 volt system? the reason I ask is a complete tune up with a 12 volt coil is something i have found, I cant seem to find one with a 6 volt coil. ordering it separate jacks up the cost quite a bit

better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it...( YES this includes CUBS! )
