I have recently acquired a 1969 Mini 850 which I am currently taking stock of to understand what exactly it is in terms of originality and condition so we (its actually my wife's car) can plan what to do with it.
In particular, there are a couple of sensors which have me stumped. Can anyone tell me what this is. It has a wire going to the coil and another disappears inside the cab so Im presuming its a gauge sender.

Secondly t[here is this which I presume is the temp sender. The gauge doesn't seem to work, but I would have thought the long adapter which the sender is fitted into would render it almost useless? or is it a known Mini thing?

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
