I know a little about the product Zero Rust as I've used it some. Its a little different then your typical Alkyd primer for one you need stronger solvents to thin it or for clean up, Xyelene or Laquer thinner is used.
Its a high solids coating (quarts are heavy) so it puts down a hard film when its fully dried. Its used in automotive restoration stuff (frames, floor boards etc. and industrail applications steel fab/welding etc for corrision resistance. I read once its fully dry its rated to be harder/stronger then catalyzed urethane coatings.

I don't know if its the ideal primer for a tractor hood or that its even intended/designed for that. If one was painting a steel utility trailer or something that is exposed to the road salt elements then proabably it would be a good idea to lay down ZR. Guys top coat it to get the color of choice and for for uv protection. ZR when dry isn't flat more like a satin finish but will fade in the sun. ZR sells a gloss clear coat for it also for uv protetion.

ZR can be top coated even with the strong solvent based urethane paints but if I was using a catalyzed paint like that on a tractor I'd use a catalyzed epoxy primer with it.
