Swaping TBI for Carb - Need Advice

Replacing the factory 4cyl TBI engine in my '82 Camaro with a 350 carbureated. I know I cant just pull the TBI & drop in a carb engine, but I'm sure there's gotta be somethings I'm not thinking of.

Are there any sensors that TBI uses that a carb engine wouldn't? Can I just unhook them or is there more to it?

Fuel Pump: Has an in-tank pump/sending unit, planning to replace the pump portion with a piece of hose & put a mechanical pump on the block. What if I go with an electric pump, any difference?

What else is there that I'm not thinking of?

Building the engine is the easy part, but I'm still a novice when it comes to the details. You guys have always given me great advice in the past and I appreciate all the help! Thanks!
