Hi Ken,

This regulator was fitted to many British cars of the late 1950's and early sixties.  Looking at some Lucas literature, I can confirm that it was on the Hillman Easidrive, but I see nothing related to the Jowett Jupiter.  It was used by Austin, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Humber, Rover, Land Rover etc.,.  
The one I have has screw terminals.  Later versions had lucar connections.  The cover is attached by two screws at the base; some versions had screws through the entire height of the box.
I'm not sure what specific vehicle the one I have come from.

I hope to get at least $100 for it.  They've become pretty hard to find.

I've attached photos. 

Cheers,
Martin

For some reason that designation sounds familiar - maybe same as my Jowett Jupiter, or Hillman Easidrive convertible with the electric automatic - but I cant verify as they're all back in Detroit and I'm here in Palo Alto until may - what do you want for it Martin?  Do you know what model car it came from?

Hello All,

I have a good used condition Lucas RB310 regulator available for sale.  It's date stamped 10/59. I bought it for my Vauxhall, but never fitted it.
I plan to list it on EBay, but I thought I'd see if there is local interest first.

Photos available on request.
