quad do not use 1200 on these motors it simply does not get hot enough in operation to cure the paint to a final cure and it will always be very very fragile and will chip like mad, use the 500* use a very light coat of primer, and then base coat it, i do not typically like to use the clear high temps as they just tend to flake, bleach, and chip... i did a full write up a while back on painting a motor if you want to search my name and that.  let me know if i can help.... i like to use an engine cleaner, then non clorine brake cleaner to clean up the motors for paint, super easy and really works great

Yeah I knew it wouldn't cure from engine heat but I have a heat gun that reaches 1375F that I was going to go through the heat cycles with. I also choose the vht flameproof because the red they had plus the clear gave it just about the same red as my frame. I'll try looking more for a closer red in the engine enamel. I only used engine cleaner, brake cleaner, and a rifle bore cleaner brush along with the red scotch brite pads.

i did a full write up a while back on painting a motor if you want to search my name and that.

Anyone find that link? My iPhone isn't going far back enough on your posts to find the thread.

duggyb, I am really digging that engine stand!
You could degrease that bellhousing and use it for all kinds of things, unless you're going to connect a trans to an engine with it. ;)

here is how i do it...
spray with gunk foaming engine cleaner... scrub with simple green and scrub brush, hose off, by now all the major grime and oil should be gone, 3 cans of non clorinated brake cleaner, wipe down with denatured alchole, light coats of primer, then paint... done

here is the motor i did this weekend
motor clean waiting on paint


i have a large oven but it is not needed just speeds the dry


all done


another motor i did
cleaned and prepped


light primer


painted


done

I was just reading back through some of this and realised aluminium melts around 11~1200f so 1300 VHT wont cure before you end up with a blob on the floor ;D

100% PJ i only use 500* paint for motors, if you go over that it will not cure and will chip and flake, also when motor paint cures it has much more resistance to chemicals like oil and gas. 500* is the way to go
