I learned myself-- always use high temp paint. I painted the air cleaner I used to have with normal high quality paint, and it bubbled and cracked and made a big mess. I guess it depends on how hot the part gets though, if it is directly attached to the engine definitely use high temp paint. Is it a part you could grab on to comfortably after running the engine? If so you may be able to get by with normal paint. If you use normal paint, do use a high temp primer that is compatible with your paint.

Personally I would use the high temp paint just because I have had to re-do some paint jobs myself where I didn't use it.

Good luck whichever way you decide to go.

Subject: [perf-list] High temp paint: necessary?



Hey guys, I got a question about high temp paints.
Truck is a 94 4.0L SC, in Electric Currant Red.
I want to paint some miscellaneous underhood pieces, preferably body color (throttle cable bracket, etc.). I was wondering if anybody knows at what point high temp paint is necessary. I can get the dupli-color stuff at Auto Zone, I know it isn't the best but for the brackets and such I think it would work fine. Anyway, obviously I can't get high temp stuff in that color. So if it's necessary, maybe would it work if I used a high-temp primer or other base coat, or maybe a high temp clear coat over it, or maybe both?? Or will I need to select some generic color that is available in high-temp??
TIA

On my 93 I painted the valve covers and crank pully with that duplicolor
stuff. It should be fine one the stuff your talking about. The high
temp is really only necessary for like your heads since they get hot
where your exahaust somes out and of course your block...

Hi.

Somebody out there can help answer my question...

I have run across a smoking deal on a set of old but "NEW" Motorsport
Cylinder Heads. Unfortunately I have been unable to find my "old"
Motorsport/SVO catalog! Would you, if you can, copy off the specifications,
etc, for the following head:
"M-6049-A460"
The heads look like a raised port configuration. I can save my self a bunch
of time if I can find out, if, and or what, what manifold(s), etc., are
required.
A scan of the factory description would be way Kool!
In the mean time I keep looking for that old Ford catalog...
I just hope that I didn't loan it out, but I have this feeling that I may
have...

TIA
Muel
