Have a problem in that part of the threaded mounting lug of my Sprints rear caliper
has broken away. It shows signs of a tack weld at some earlier time which has given up.
Anyone know a good fix or the whereabouts of a replacement please?

Can't see how a good quality repair could be guaranteed as it's a casting. Remember it's a safety critical part of the car especially with a single line braking systems.
As far as I know, these calipers castings are no longer available new. Hunt down a good 2nd hand one at a Lotus meeting or via ebay.
By the way, could this post be moved into the Common section as brake calipers are the same for the Elan and Plus 2.
