Default Early Porsche 928S Bellhousing

Greetings.
I am currently restoring my 1983 Model Porsche 928S (Euro)
After a long while of searching for a good mechanic, I found one who was willing to insert an engine into my Porsche 928S. So he worked on it, and until now, he inserted the engine into the car, and replaced all the rubber tubes, and much more important things that were needed to be done.
But I struck trouble because the engine I inserted into the car is not its original matching numbers engine. Mine is a 1983 Model 928S engine, which was completely ruined, in which I had to buy a new engine. the closest thing I was able to find was a 1980 model 928S euro engine, so I got that. The problem is, that there is a different lower bell housing for the model years 1980-1982 928 models, and the 1983 one was different, the starter was mounted outside with a mount for space. This created a problem, as I have a bellhousing for a 1983 model, but my engine is a 1980 model. So I searched the internet, and could not find any for sale. Does anyone know a way of getting around this problem, or if anyone happens to have the part I need so I could buy it?

The part number of the part I need is this:
928 116 411 12

Many thanks,
Faisal.

Hello.
This is great to hear. The only reason I asked for the availability is because I did not find it on any other website.
