I don't think the picture is an actual representation. The description says "long block" not "complete engine".

I don't see any accessories here:
Also included in the turnkey packages are:

* Holley carburetor with electric choke
* Chrome air cleaner assembly
* ACDelco spark plugs
* HEI distributor
* Chevrolet Performance Parts red spiral core spark plug wires
* Long water pump
* 8 in. harmonic balancer
* 12 3/4 in. flexplate for automatic transmission
* Oil filter and adapter
* PCV valve
* PCV hose
* Oil dipstick and tube
* Fuel pump
* Starter

If it's any consolation, you should be able to swap everything: bracket for bracket, bolt for bolt to the new engine without moving the accessories around.
Yes I figured I could do that , thank you.

Ok just to correct this for future views, this does come with the accessories. The water pump is counter clockwise so a new fan & fan clutch will need to be purchased as well, I’m still looking into the a/c.

You can just buy a standard rotation water pump and use all of your accessories and fan set up then sell the reverse rotation pump.
The reverse pump needs to be used with a serpentine set up.

IMO there are better options for the money than your GM crate engine
Just one example.
And it uses a roller instead of flat tappet cam
