That is the voltage it was made for.

If I put the battery charger on it ....then it will be ok?

That is, the charger will give the starter direct current.
I do not wish to go through the Battery this time.

A charger will not provide enough amps to turn starter unless it's out of the car sitting on your workbench.

Mike you've got two posts going now with the absolute minimum amount of info in them which makes any educated guessing impossible. 6 volt starter takes 6 volts. Hate to assume but I figure it's not cranking. Please give some solid info so we can offer decent advice.

Mike, most battery chargers don't put out enough amps to crank over the starter motor.

Some models of battery chargers do have an engine start mode I have one. It will put out 100 amps. It has a 6 volt and 12 volt starting mode.

Are you having trouble starting you T? If it is it could be the trouble is in your starter, or wiring. Maybe its not well grounded, weak battery.

Your T will start and run well on 6 volts if everything is in working order.

If your trying to 'jump start it' something in the starting circuit isn't right.
