Welcome to the Club, Mike.

 

Head gaskets on the way out should usually show some Oil in the coolant reservoir.

 

The last time I replaced one was on a Triumph Herald.  That was a bit easy.  Nowadays you need a bit more expertise than I have.

 

But there are some very expert members who will share their experience of doing that job.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.
