They certainly arent from a 910 of mid 80s vintage. Lotus tend to use concentric dowels rather than shaped studs (they are expensive to make) Interesting to fund out whether they are metric or not. 8 is an unusual number too for a 4 cylinder. The Cosworth FVA I'm building at the moment uses many of the type shown as an example.
