Auto to Manual Tranny Swap

My buddy has an '03 F250 with a '94 12valve cummins swap. Has original auto transmission. He's going to drop in a 6spd manual. Any suggestions besides don't do it? Or things to look out for. His original motor was a gasser. I notice the brakes on diesels seem to be hydraulic boost while on gassers they are vacuum boost. Is there a reason for this?

i may be wrong, and only guessing, but maybe its because that the diesel has to have its own vac pump, so its easier?

idk. lol.

Thanks. The swap is complete. Worked out nice. There was a thread on here about filling transmissions and having to jack the fill side of the truck up to get the required amount of fluid in there. Is this true?
