    help with correct headset

    This is my first post, so apologies if its not in the correct sub forum. I have already received loads of information here but was wondering if anyone could help with a specific issue.
    I have a merlin malt 4 frame that has not been used in years (or at least I always thought I did). I decided to build it back up again this summer and when it came time to buy the headset I emailed merlin and attached pictures of the frame and the two of the head tube that I have attached here.
    They recommended a cane creek forty 1 1/8 external headset so i ordered it, however it doesn't fit the external cups just rattle around inside.
    I am no bike mechanic but it seems that there are already two cups for bearings to sit in built into the frame, the bottom one being about twice as deep as the top.
    If anyone could shed some light on the situation or recommend a headset that would fit, it would be much appreciated
    Thank you for your time
