George, call Brian and ask him for the spacer info... if he is recommending it he should have the info... and/or the source where you can pick it up... or at least the specs you can take to a machinest with a lathe. The spacer will go inbetween the balancer and the crank bolt. I'll betcha the thickness of the spacer is damn close to the difference between the LS7 and GENIII (LS1/2/6, etc) sprockets
Yes, everything you listed will work... but you will also need the bottom LS2 crank/pump sprocket.... here is the reason why... (sorry the pic is so big)
Left is the LS7 sprocket... right is the GENIII (LS1/2/6, etc) sprocket... if you don't change the lower sprocket... obviously none of your accessory drive will line up with the harmonic balancer you will use...
I would run the LS2 windage tray... but you will probably need spacers underneath it (between the main caps and tray) to keep the rods (4" stroke) from scraping the tray...
... and you'll need to machine the dip stick boss on the block... well... only if you plan on checking the oil level from time to time
Whats the motor going in? Going to stick with the 58x reluctor wheel and the 4x cam sprocket? If so, chances are you'll need to swap the cam sensor off the LS7 front cover to your LS2 cover.
