According to the RCTS book on the Jubilees, the boiler (No. 8630) from 45637 was the only surviving part of it, and was repaired and put back into service on 45583 Assam in March 1953. This boiler ended its days on 45664 Nelson, withdrawn from Holbeck shed on 3rd. May 1965, being disposed of to Albert Draper's, Hull w/c 16.07.65
Interestingly, (4)5637 was involved in 3 other incidents where damage was caused...
1936 - £17 damage recorded on EHC, repaired at shed
02.10.1936 - Collision at Temple Meads when a Birmingham-Penzance express collided with a Western train. Coach tipped over, and bogie leant on motion of Jubilee.
03.10.1936 - Tender damage repaired at Light Repair at Crewe Works [presumably as a result of 2. above]
When LBSC designed a 3.5" gauge version of Jenny Lind he did not attach the inner frames to the firebox. They are attached at the rear to the outside frames, which take all the load. This works fine but the rear section of the frames is very flexible side to side and has to be stiffened by a horizontal plate. This arrangement works very well.

This has not proved a problem on either Welsh Pony or Palmerston on the Festiniog which have the same arrangement. Most of the replicas of early locos are also built around the boiler so there is plenty of precedent for this.
I assume that Mountaineer III will have/has the same arrangement?
To judge by the 3/4 rearview photo of the boiler (28th May 2020) on the project's Facebook page, that looks like a "yes". No login needed:
Easy to see where the idea of 'Frames' comes from
