8.2L Detroit Diesel Swap Questions

Hello, I have a 1989 Ford F350 with a 460 that I am going to pull and replace with an 8.2L Detroit Diesel. I bought the 8.2L from a guy that pulled it from a street sweeper. I have a question with more to come im sure, hoping someone can help. Do I need a lift pump or a sending unit to get fuel to the motor or will the motor pull the fuel from the tank?

As great as this website is, you may want to try the 4BT website. If it's been swapped, its on the website. I've heard of guys making 3208s and DT466s fit, but not a 8.2.
That puppy is 1200 pounds and 165hp

Check out the 3208s in pickups. They're 10.4 liters. I just saw one with a 8.3 Cummins in a Dodge. If there is a will, there is a way.
