Do we assume that you have the ubiquitous Rover engine (3.5, 3.9, 4.0, 4.2, 4.6).?....or some other engine?
First place I'd check are the conversion/installations in the "photo galleries" at the top of the page for left hand mount alternators...find an installation that appeals and perhaps 'PM' the owner for particulars.
As a last resort, barring any off-shelf bracket(s) availability, it's possible to fabricate a mounting system without too much difficulty.
