Several shops that cater to the rod business have them, you might check out a Rod & Custom or Street Rodder and you'll surely find something to fill your needs in the advertising section (in some magazines that seems like what it mostly is).

Thy Alan Grove Components the below link should take you there. I am using his brackets on my 327 with the double hump heads with no accessory holes.

Autozone and Advanced Auto both sell a bracket that bolts in at the #1 exhaust flange. Then you use an adjustable bracket from the front of your intake to the top of the alternator. Brackets are reasonably priced and are even chrome.

I am using Alan Grove brackets on my 327 Vette motor. Hve PS, Alternator on the left (drivers side) and AC compressor on the left. Every thing bolted up nicely using the intake and water pump bolts. There are others such as March but you are going to put out more bucks.
