The water pump and PS pump are on the exhaust side of the engine, also pointing towards front of engine. It's been a long time since I worked on that engine, so not 100% sure of the PS pump.

So from accessories standpoint, ditch the ac compressor and its OK?
That's a fair possibility. Perhaps it may be possible to add an AC compressor in the opposite direction into belt loop. It's very hot in Texas and retaining AC is important. If only 48 volt systems were more readily available, an electrical ac compressor could potentially be utilized.
