I've never seen one, and assume they are NLA, since the 310 is quite old.

Yes, it provides high voltage to the flash, same as the external 
power supplies, which is the cause of the noise.

I've used either flash, grip or both, depending on the subject and 
recycle times needed, battery condition, etc.

I have the original manual from mine, and could copy if you can't 
find another source. I do plan to scan it for Greg's archives 
sometime, but that may take a while. Have you called Olympus? If 
you still need one, please contact me offline...
