I'm here.

I think I already explained your options re the flywheel; your best option is to 
have Berg install a 12V ring gear on the original 180mm 6V flywheel.

If the generators are the same diameter, I don't think there are any other 
mods this will need.

I strongly recommend that you NOT do this because of the oil pump studs. 
The "adaptors" are poorly designed anyway, but your early engine will have 
6mm oil pump studs which will be even weaker. You're talking about a lot of 
work just to lead up to a big disappointment and the destruction of a good 
early motor.
