One rolled coat should cover . If your paint is too thin you may get air bubbles , too thick and it may be "lumpy" . A short nap roller would work better .
Test a spot and if you don't like it , wipe it off with a thinner rag , let dry and try again .
Basically paint sticks better to paint . Paint doesn't stick well to metal so primer is used . You only need to prime the bare spots .
Brushing/rolling primer is OK , just make sure it has fully cured before applying paint or you could mechanically mix the two . I have seen red primer and white paint turn to a light pink top coat .
Alkyd w/ hardener would be good for a DIY working tractor .
I use "Paso" or a liquid sander which removes oil , grease , dirt and softens the old paint so the new paint can stick . Just wet a rag and wipe . Keep refolding your rag and change when it gets dirty .
Cast iron doesn't need sanded before priming but smooth metal could use a little roughing up to help the primer stick . Cast iron needs the pores to be free of oils , use soapy water , thinner , or liquid sander .
