You are right about the oil pump issue.My boss's had two FE 427's and one turned opposite than the other one.They were prop driven.It must have had a reverse cam to compensate for that.That was in 72 so not sure about that. When I moved here in 2011,I saw two 427 Marine engines for sale on craigs list near here.I went to look at them.The seller pointed out one was reverse rotation.Non side oilers and I think hydraulic lifters,not sure about that either but rich boat owners didn't want to worry about adjusting valve lash in a cruiser very expensive boat.
