Looking for a 24 volt starter

Im looking for a 24 volt starter that will bolt in to the place of the stock one. i have wired on up before and it worked awesome. it was a four battery system that was all 12 volts tell you "armed" they starter by isolating two of the batteries and switched them to 24volt and hit the starter switch. Worked great for cold starts. Now i want to do the same to my pickup but i cant seam to find a starter for it. So if anyone knows where i can find one that would be just awesome.

I doubt you will find a direct bolt on unit. Perhaps look at something from a military vehicle and try to adapt it or have a stock one rewound. Realistically, your best option is going to be a gear reduction unit but regardless of how fast you spin the engine over, heat will be you main issue. Make sure your glow plug system is working properly and make plans to plug the block heater in if it gets really cold.
