Wes, in regards to my starter I think I know what it is. I believe that it is a Delco Remy 6 volt starter. The one I was looking at online is model 1107075 that was used on late 40's and early 50's ...

You said the jeep was converted from 24 volt to 6 volt, then you had the starter wired for 12 volts.
