Default Flathead fan bracket question

I am in the process of building my 34 pickup and need to nail down the fan I will be using on the flathead. I want to use a bracket off the intake to carry the fan and also function as the belt tensioner but can't find one with a single hole. Does anyone know if Ford made a single hole bracket? The generator brackets had 1 hole. I did find a fan carrier bracket made by Offenhauser (#3499) but was hoping to find a Ford part.

For reference, I am running a french flathead block with a Navarro 3x2 intake. The block in the picture is for mock up only.

Offenhauser has the fancarrier bracket.
Not sure of anything else around stock.

I've used the off-set head mounted bracket for the generator and fab'd an adapter (basic flat plate milled to match original profile of the generator mount) with a stock fan bracket. Haven't tried it, but you may be able to cut the piece needed off a scraped generator.
