What type of AC compressor do I have and what is this empty bracket?

I bought a replacement aftermarket clutch because mine is failing to stay engaged. It said it was for a TRSE07 COMPRESSOR. It doesn't look like I have that. See picture:

I really should have checked before I bought a replacement but I thought the odds were on my side. Do any of you fine gentlemen know what type of compressor I have so I can get the right clutch?

Also, what's the deal with that empty bracket? I haven't had this car for most of it's life and I don't know what's been done to it before me. Most of the clips that hold the splash guards and covers around the engine are gone so work was done to this in the past and I'm wondering if things are different or missing.

Edit: Well it looks like that bracket is also empty on the video on YouTube that I was using as a guide so that's interesting. Why have that bracket if it's not used?

Well I've been looking around online and have seen images of the ac compressor with this style clutch and they all say that this is the TRSE07. So why the different style of clutches? In theory this replacement should work then even though they are slightly different?

Aftermarket clutches will vary. Likely be fine. I put one on a few years back but the compressor eventually gave up the ghost after the fan went out and caused the pressures to go sky high.
