Hello, I have an 1989 Ford F350 with a 460 that I am going to swap with an 8.2L Detroit Diesel. I haven't found much information online so im hoping someone can help. I have the motor on a pallet and can get it started. I have a external pump pumping fuel to the fuel pump on the motor with a return line into the plastic tank I have it pumping fuel from. A battery running that fuel pump along with the switch and the starter to get it started. My question is do I need that lift pump or is the pump on the motor supposed to pull fuel from the tank as well as run the motor? If I do need one does anyone know where I might find one?
