Hi - Can you tell from the pic attached which model of distributor this rotor arm is from? (Sprint '72)

Thanks

Looks to be from a Lucas 23D4 or 25D4, which is right as I believe the 23D4 was factory fitted by Lotus. It looks the same as the rotor in the Lucas 25D4 in my MGB. In my +2S a previous owner has put in a replacement Lucas 43D4, and the rotors are different. You can see pictures of both here:
