Changing mechanical fuel pump in valley

What's involved in changing this pump? I have a friend with an international box van. Budget truck 24 or 28 foot. Lift up front end. He needs a mechanical pump installed. Been a while since I screwed with one. What do I need to do? What tools? It's at a storage place. He can't get it to me. I have to travel to do a road sue repair.
Thx for any info

You can get it out without removing the turbo however, getting the banjo bolt back in is a PITA. I had to get my 12yr old daughter to get bolt started back into the new fuel pump. If I remember correctly the banjo bolt is 1 1/4" box end wrench will get it off. I first removed the fuel filter bowl and then the fuel pump. I loosened pump hold down bolts and tapped pump loose then bumped starter till pump pushed up so as to not loose the plunger. Wasn't difficult just hard getting banjo bolt back in. If you have small hands or someone with small hands that can get bolt started it's not bad. Good luck hope this helps

What's up with the plunger? I have been in there before to change the little hoses, the short ones. It's been a while. Will something fly out? Does fuel bowl have to cone out? If so, do I need new seals? Trying to have all necessary parts. It's an hour drive to this truck. It's out in an old storage place in middle of no where. Tough to get more parts.
Can I do something with electric pump and bypass it? Can I rig done thing easy to get it home?

On the powerstroke 7.3 the plunger for the fuel pump is in the bottom of the pump facing down inside the engine. If the pump lobe is down the plunger if loose in the pump could drop inside engine. If your lucky it will end up in the oil pan. I always have Murphy waiting in the wings for me when I decide to do something "easy and simple"
