... thanks for the detailed procedure WCB!  

Funny, I'm getting a bit motivated to work on cars now that the Fox is gone
... Tom, I actually cleaned out the garage a bit after you left ... sorry I
did not do so before you got here!  I decided to do the cleaning so that I
could roll the trash/recycling bins out through the garage again!  Anyway,
while cleaning up I found my reworked WX head ... and I realized that it
shouldn't take that much work to install it and get the engine running
properly again.  I've thought about getting the EM and downpipe ceramic
coated to get the temps down ... but your method might do the trick for le$$
