    is there such a thing as a 6 volt jump pack ?

    Don't think so but, don't know why it could not be available.
    There is no problem using a 12-volt pack, or jumping from a 12-volt vehicle, if you observe a couple simple principles. Give your 6-volt starting system a 12-volt jolt for as short a period of time as possible and make certain any 6-volt lights are shut off. Connect all negative terminals. Connect positive terminal on the 12-volt system. Have someone engage the ignition and starter on the 6-volt system and momentarily connect the positive 12-volt to the positive 6-volt terminal. Once started, disconnect as soon a humanly possible.
    If your 6-volt system has a generator rather than an alternator, you should be able to get to wherever you need to go, even if your battery is toast.

    Then...fix your system.
