I am calling my supplier in the morning as Cole Hersee has some with silver contacts but only 200 amps but 700 intermittent so will see what the price is.
Silver will provide better conductivity, but has a lower melting point then copper and will fuse nicely at those amperages.
I think that Cat 1500 amp one from Texasindustrial would do it

I saw Gord Whalley mentioned here.
His son just sent me a picture of him at the first tractor pull at BC Place which he won.

Have you looked into gear reduction starters?
I went from a direct drive to a gear reduction starter on my military truck and the difference was night and day.

Also for something like a starter motor, you can feed a 12v model 24v and it should be fine as long as all the other systems are in operable shape. I would try running the starters in parallel with 24v.
