A few interesting facts,

Cummins uses a "grid heater" in the intake to warm the air on cold days, not glow plugs.

No throttle plate, thus no manifold vacuum. The engine speed is controlled by a valve in the injector pump that moves more or less fuel. Brake vacuum is supplied by an external pump.

Yes, a diesel engine requires no electricity to run.

As far as the swap, the advantage of 24v is the ability to use smaller gauge wire to conduct equal wattage. Not a game changer in your SHTF scenario, however living at the top of the hill...
