Etching Primer

I gotta question for you all - I took my gas tank off my MF 135 so next time I get home I can have it steam cleaned and sealed.
It and the brackets have rust on them from when the tractor was sitting outside for 13 years. When I was at home I took a wire brush and cleaned it up, etc. I want to prime it but I don't have a paint gun and I saw some Krylon Etching primer and Sandable Primer.
I know I am going to give the tractor its new coat of paint within the next six months, so can I get by using the krylon primer in a can?
I want something to protect the metal till I can go in and repaint it - would this be a good band aid? there is rust and some of the original paint on the brackets. I was considering stripping them with a solvent (preferably non-toxic)

Remove the rust and paint and use a rust protectant such as Must For Rust from Home Depot $, or Picklex 20 $$$. These are mild rust converters more suited to protecting the metal until painting, usually last for months if kept dry. I do not like cheap rattle can primer under good paint, may not be compatible with the topcoat and should be removed before painting anyway. The excess Picklex or MFR residue can be removed with a scotchbrite pad and treated with wax and grease remover before painting. If methylene chloride in paint strippers bothers you, wear a charcoal mask, and immediately wash off any that gets on your skin.
