Sorry to tell you mate but that bracket looks custom made. All Hilux use a direct mount compressor and the one used is what we call an ear mount. If you want to keep your setup you will be best off taking that bracket off and taking it into a local fabricator to make a new one. Alternatively if your willing to put in the extra effort find a wreck with factory air con and take the bracket and compressor out of that and adapt to yours. 

Any Hilux with a 2L, 3L or 5L diesel with factory air con will bolt up to the same holes on the block.

As is my air cond set up, I too was under the assumption all compressors are direct mount fixed brackets and the belt is held snug via an idler pulley. That bracket looks like my alternator bracket on my little workmate
