You're lucky,as I have both Lotus and Spyder mountings on the bench at the moment and I'm sure I have a 4 speed in the shed somewhere....I'll photo all three of them for you in the morning..

The Lotus 5 speed bracket used a different set of chassis mounting holes compared to the 4 speed Lotus bracket. My 1980 Elan Lotus replacement chassis came with both.

To complete the set, a couple of photos of the Spyder 4 speed 2000E gearbox mount. Note the improved details typical of Spyder - the hole in the centre so you can get at the bolt that secures the rubber mount to the gear Box and slotted rubber mount to chassis mount holes to allow for all the various tolerances affecting alignment so you don't have to distort the engine and gear box rubber mounting to bolt it in.

cheers
