It has been almost three years since I did anything significant to my BMW Twin Cam conversation due to having children, changing jobs and having an extension on the house. Luckily i have a garage which is dry and warm and has been covered over, on top of this the engine has been turned periodically.

Anyway, I need to get back on to getting this finished otherwise it will sit there for ever and a day and never get done, so I need a little help in locating some parts such as an oil drain that will sit where the mechanical fuel pump used to be, a water pipe adapter that sits on the front of the head, preferably with a thermostat in. I also need an adapter for the oil feed to the head, this also needs to incorporate the oil pressure gauge. (on thinking about this I could just get rid of the old pressure switch that sits on the top and use that fitting).

I now hope I can get motivated to make a start as I have many things left to do....

I also look forward to reading the posts on here again

If you have money, SC does all the parts you described...
but Iím sure you knew that.
Alternatively, start fabricating stuff. The K1200 coolant elbow is 90-deg curved which may give another option over the almost-straight K1100 version.
There has been a post in the past few months about motorbike inline thermostat housings you may want to search for.

I drilled and tapped the banjo bolt on the pipe from pump to filter for the cam oil feed. this leaves the usual place for pressure switch for oil light - or oil pressure gauge - or both if you have an adapter
