Well , here's what I have found that may (have been) causing my unexplained heat issue ...CARBON !
Every fill-up I used to put about a shot glass of Techron in the tank ( supposed to reduce carbon ) .
CC'S & valves were full of it but the pistons were surprisingly clean !

Seats & valves lapped .
Into the sink for a thorough scrubbing to remove any traces of lapping compound .
On to the reassembly.

Regarding carbon buildup,any thoughts about this "TCW3 additive"?

Text from bottom Link.

"I've been dosing TCW3 at 1;640 in my motorcycle for 10 years. I see two tangible benefits; There is a very slow cleaning effect in the combustion chambers as it has visibly reduced carbon build up on the piston tops. It eliminates mild pinging when the engine is run on 95 Ron instead of 98. this is not a widely claimed benefit but I have seen others report the same effect. The less tangible benefits that I have no evidence to support are, it acts like a fuel stabiliser and the trace lubrication of the carb slide and needle should reduce long term wear."
