There have been a few nos parts on UK ebay recently. Also those should be standard Austin Maxi /Allegro parts if it helps.

You could also try Elite/Eclat specialists. Same parts different casings.

I think your options are:
- EBay/forum
- Graham Bolton (? - I think he is Norfolk based and Sue miller might be able to help)
- Voights also deal with the Lotus 5 speed box
- Elite/Eclat parts, lotusbits.com sell used boxes which you could get parts from or switch bell and tail housings with your gearbox
