Converting a 12v alternator to 24v

I built a solar/battery backup system that I just converted from 12v to 24v. I made a 12v backup generator for it and want to convert the alternator to 24v as well. It's a Delco Remy 35SI HD 140a alternator with a remote sense wire. Can I just make a voltage divider out of a couple of 1w resistors and wire it to the remote sense? I've been told that internally the 12 and 24 volt HD truck alternators are the same internally. That could be miss-information though.
