CRDI: possible on an old diesel?

For the diesel experts:

What if I take my old diesel engine, with a rotative Bosch injection pump and common mechanic injectors. Then:

a) I take out injectors and injection pump. Easy.
b) Install a high pressure injection pump. Easy.
c) Install a Bosch Common Rail Direct Injection (CRDI) system. Not easy.
d) Install an electronic injection computer. Easy.
e) Install electronic governed injectors. Easy.

Make all CRDI work (not easy) with the necessary pipes, wires and sensors:

Would the engine work?
Is an old block, are old cylinders and pistons so on, able to resist the new efforts?
