6 volt coil polarity

My question is for 2 other cars that I own. When you change the 6 volt positive ground system to negative ground. Does the coil terminals need reversing also?

I've seen it both ways in previous discussions here and elsewhere. Hard to tell what's right. But look at the internal wiring of a coil (below); seems to me that the primary terminal with both internal windings connected to it needs to be going to the points and more importantly, the condenser. You might do a websearch to be sure.
