That is all looking good. From a scrutineering standpoint please read the rulebook thoroughly regards cage tube material and basic structure. At this stage of the build it is easy to fix any minor issues. Any questions or queries contact one of the scruitineering crew. We will all be happy to help.
Be careful of compromise. Sometimes better to tear up a design that doesn't work out, call it proto 1 and look at the big picture and your investment in that. Some of my best decisions in motorsport were put in the bin. Saying that the "Harky solution" sounds good.
Regards your pump orientation its no problem upside down, alternator on its own only needs a 3pk belt. (less frictional loss) Be aware when bleeding the system your change to the pump position but they self bleed ok.

Well done guys. What an effort.
Very important to build in sufficient thrust bearing clearance. I used to run mine too close, (say 2-5mm) and had issues with clutch slip when hot. Be sure you have the clutch manufacturers spec on minimum clearance.
