On-board Starter for DLE 30

Setting up a Midwest Texan with DLE 30. Since it is going to need a bit of weight up front anyway I would like add an on-board starter. I poke around an don't see any kits.

The gears should be not much of an issue as I have lots of different ones lying around an access to lathe and milling machine to adapt and make mounting plates etc.

The question is how am I going to accomplish the one-way drive? Does somebody sell just the one-way bearings I have seen described? Is there an easy way to throw the gear in with a solenoid? Dose anybody sell just a small starter motor with bendix, I could make the rest of it.

there is a guy in the UK i believe that sells a kit for the dle55, might fit or be adaptable.

anyways, he just uses a one way torrington bearing. any good bearing shop should have a decent selection. boca bearing should as well.
