Ah well that’s ok Andy, I ordered one of the white/grey collar from fleabay for 8 quid , now I’ll have both !
Now you have a choice to select the sender that gives the best reading on the temperature gauge.
What I would do is to use an infra red thermometer to determine what sort of temperature the engine is running at, then fit the sender that gives the most accurate reading. For example, if the engine is running at a temperature high enough for the thermostat to open, chose the sender that gives the appropriate reading on the gauge. That way at least you'll have a reasonably idea of what the engine temperature is.
