Default 401 engine mounts

Can anyone help?
I am in the process of restoring a 401 which HAD been converted to run using a Triumph TR engine and gearbox. In order to fit this configuration the previous owners modified the engine and gearbox mountings which are welded to the chassis legs. They also modified the prop shaft in order to fit the different gearbox.

I am now in the process of fitting an original Bristol 6 cylinder engine and need to modify the engine mounts back to what was there originally. Can anyone provide drawings or pictures of the original mounts on the chassis legs.
I am also looking for a replacement prop shaft - can anyone help or suggest alternatives.
Happy to supply photos or what I have at present.
I am based in the UK

UPDATED - Many thanks to Brian May who provided pics of examples of chassis legs and engine mounts

Many thanks but I think I have already located a prop shaft. Out of interest do you have other spares for sale?
