Bill, The idea was to use a full length 2-2x12 to carry the load and act as a replacement beam without the extra effort of removing the 4x12. With enough bolts, the loads will transfer to the 4x12 which will transfer the reaction load to the post at the ends without the 2-2x12 bearing at the ends. I assume that 2-2x12 plus a craked 4x12 is adequate to carry rhe load. If you use a short plate or strap connection at the bottom of beam, a very small horizontal movement of the bottom of the beam relative to the strap or plate will mean a very large vertical sag of the beam.
