For now for now have  a look at the left hand side (looking forwards) of the thermostat housing. There may be a brass plug in there. If so that will do as a feed and T the return into the return from the skin tank. However, there may be a temperature sender in that hole.

I think there is still a hexagon plug in the position I described and it looks like the temperature sender is in another hole beside it.

Hi Tony ye i checked that and temp sender is in first hole  as seen in picture.There is another behind it with  what looks like another sender for what i dont know so i traced wire from it and it appears to be a negative looped off oil sender ! Any ideas what it might be?

Well done, the hose that needs removing or cutting is clear to see. It looks to me as if the bypass hose is clipped onto hose tails so once you get the hang of the idiot hose clips it should be easy to connect up - I would use proper worm drive hose clips.

Your battery cabling looks as if it could do with 'some sorting'.

 

It appears that your individual wires are screwed to a metal C-shape conduit clamp and then the clamp bolted to the battery terminal.

You also appear to have a black wire with a red marker sleeve going to the negative terminal. (That would normally mean it should be attached to the positive, and may cause you / someone problems when changing batteries)

Pretty easy to sort out (get two sets and have a spare)

2 x Battery Terminals Pair Positive & Negative Stud Type Nut 8mm + -: Amazon.co.uk: Car & Motorbike

 

 

Remember No more than 3 wires are allowed on any terminal. If you need more then run a single wire from the battery terminal to a Bus-Bar.

Am I correct now that the end going into the pump is the return to the top of the coil in the calorifier, the thermostat end is the flow to the bottom of the coli?

That is how I understand it but I would probably pipe the calorifier the other way round and see if it self bled. If it did then doing it that way might help minimise thermos-syphoning when the engine is stopped. If it did not self bleed then  would do it the way you say.
