New purchase, have some concerns

Just purchased a 2005 450r and I have a few questions that I am hoping someone could give me some insight on. The quad is clean and was to have just been built this winter. Below I have copied and pasted what he sent me as the build sheet.
New powder coat, new bearings, freshly serviced fox fronts and rear axis shocks, Walsh +1 stem, Walsh over flow tank, Gibson +2 long travel a arms, LSR +1 swingarm and LSR link, 06+ fcr carb and air box, crf cam/ignition/stator/flywheel, flexx bars, new dwt wheels front and back, CPcarillo 13.5:1 piston, Hinson clutch system, race cut harness, mishimoto radiator, new plastics, full yoshimura exhaust.

Below are my questions/concerns.

The individual I purchased it from told me that with the mishimoto radiator it’s designed to delete the fan. So there is no fan on it and he told me it doesn’t need one. Anyone know if this is true?
On the FCR carb, it has a little gold knob that comes out under the bottom of the carb on the left side. On the back side of the knob a wire runs up into the carb and it looks like the carb is leaking from there. Does anyone know what this is? My assumption is that it is the idle screw but it didn’t really seem to do much when I adjusted it.
On the Gibson a-arms, does anyone know where I can get replacement ball joints? I can’t find anything on the internet.
Also, anyway to confirm that this motor was just rebuilt without tearing it all apart?

I have attached some photos of the carb and the quad. Thank you for any insight you can give. Really hoping that I didn’t just get jipped.
