poor water circulation? if no water is in contact with the sensor it can give all sorts of strange readings, check water level and possibly the water pump as that might explain poor/no flow at idle speeds, otherwise regulator or even earthing to the block of the sensor

I assume thats because the motor has a field coil rather than a magnet and so will always run in the right direction, have you turned it on to check

I'll take your word for it, but why would I need to unbolt one tower?

is this so I can 'twist' the engine a little to do one at a time?
