I have been following this lead about peeling headers
for a few days now. I have always had an
understanding that products like powder coating and
"jet-coating" by Eastwood are not made for high
temperature applications.
I was told these products couldn't be used for
headers, and areas of the engine block around the
exhaust ports.


Anyone else heard this....or is it just me?

You need to replace the field coils. 12 volt coils
can be ordered from Patrick's Antique Auto Parts, I
haven't seen any other suppliers.

Total cost, about $60.

Bill,
Not the same as powder coating. Cermakrome is much better protection against
corrosion and will withstand higher temps. I believe you can powder coat
over it which would give you the best of both worlds. They recommend that
you lightly glass bead the Cermakrome finish with low pressure (just rough
it up, don't blast through to bare metal) to give the powder coat better
adhesion. I'd check with the powder coat supplier to make sure their product
will work this way. Good luck.

John Harrison

Rewound coils. You can have it done by an electrical shop, or you may be
able to buy replacement field coils (I know they're available for 38-48,
but my catalogs generally stop at 1948).

Yes. And you'll need a new ignition coil, although you can get 12v coils
with built-in ballast resistors: my wife got one at NAPA, basically asking
for a '12 volt coil with ballast resistor'. Or you could get a wire with
built-in resistance. I know early Mustangs used this instead of a resistor,
but I don't know where to get the wire separate from a whole wiring harness.
