fuel level sending unit question

I have been working on the fuel system for my 34 Olds project car and I just realized that I need to solve a potential problem. I plan on using the original fuel level sending unit in the original tank, but it is a 6 volt system that will be converted to a 12 volt set up. Is there anything I need to worry about by hooking up 12 volts to this original sending unit? I really and clueless about the electrical stuff and I sure do not want to burn the original unit out. I don't even know how this ting works, somehow by turning a gear the level is converted to an electrical signal that registers on the dash gauge. This seems like magic to me. You help is appreciated. Thanks. Mike
