I'm curious to see if you will ever find those 3 parts for a reasonable price. In 40 years I have never had them in my hand.

You can take the 6v reg. gut it and put in a modern regulator or one of the conversions out there,

I have seen 12 volt coils for the starters on the auction site, think you will need to source a 6/12 volt armature or a pure 12 v arm. Someplace here i had, might still have a couple starters that dont work on 6 volt, on checking them out the arm numbers point to a 6/12 volt armature ( from the 60's in a 1945 starter) never figured out how to verify what the coils were, too cold out there to play with that small stuff now

On the generator, only one I ever saw was a monster in size, can a 6 v be rewound?

guess a 1 wire delco remmy is out of the question?

As Adam asked
Are you looking for the large 12 volt autolite generator?
If so i may be able to help with that and a regulator
