Thanks chaps.

Samc: I went on to find a third temperature sender, which I think is for the Kenlowe fan that's currently fitted. I knew these two were original though, as they are referenced in the 'Green Bible' - forgot to mention that!

Robin: Got you - thanks. I hadn't seen this set-up before, as the 2.5 petrol in my Series III has only the one sender by the thermostat - the head doesn't have anywhere to accommodate an Otter switch, so I assume they must have been phased out by the time 90/110 production began.

Calum: Thanks, that's reassuring! I've had a read around and it seems that the brown exhaust valve deposits are also indicative of correct mixture, along with low oil consumption. All seems promising. I've completely stripped the head now, and the two inlet rocker shafts have what to me seems very little scoring. Valves look good too. I'll get some photos on fairly soon, though, as multiple opinions are always good!
