[ROVERNET - UK] Need help - Cyclops voltage regulator

The Lucas reference number for the control box (as it is called this side of 
the pond) for both Jag XK120 and Rover 75 cyclops is 37076.  This number 
should be moulded into the base of the control box.

It is possible to replace the internals of the control box, using  the 
internals from a later control box such as that fitted to a frog eye (bug 
eye?) sprite. Both bobbins are mounted on a chassis that attaches to the 
bakelite base.  You need to re make the electrical connections.

hope this helps
