Yeah it does look like you have a engine that runs clockwise. I suppose you could maybe change the timing on it to run counter clockwise if you wanted to.

That looks like an accelerator pump to me. Some of the engines or carbs do have accelerator pumps on them too. It is handy for punching the throttle fast. When you move the throttle the lever should cause the plunger to move too. Of course it could be vacuum controlled also where it only moves if the engine is running.

If you keep the flywheel, you'll need to make the prop adapter to screw onto the crankshaft stub that threading that end of the adapter for the crankshaft. Put on a couple of flats so you can get wrench on it. The other end of the prop adapter can have a short threaded stub shaft and or four bolts for firmly attaching the prop to it.

With that style crankcase you could directly bolt it up to the firewall on a airplane. You can either drill a hole for the crankshaft end or cut it off some too.
