Don, It's been my experience that if it's a "show" tractor then the hi temp paints will probably hold up pretty good. If it's a working tractor then even the hi temp paint will not last very long. I have painted some on a couple of my tractors that are only ran at shows and they still look great after several years. I have a JD Model A with a manifold and pipe that has been ceramic coated and it looks like new even after plowing and working it pretty hard.

When you painted with the hi-temp paint, did you use a primer first? Also, what brand of paint did you use? Is the ceramic coat expensive?

No, I do not prime them, I am not aware of any Hi temp primer. I do treat the manifold with phosphoric acid before painting to "kill" any rust that may be hidden away in the pores of the casting. That seems to help a lot to keep the rust from coming back. I them paint them with JD black muffler paint.

Works for me.
