Convert Internal floppy to external floppy

As mentioned in other posts, my A1200 internal floppy chip is dead.
I now have 3 working but unusable Amiga internal floppy drives.

I want to try an external floppy, but dont have one.

Is there a simple schematic for a cable/adaptor to convert the ribbon and power connector of the internal floppy to the external port?
