I thought I read about someone clear coating their master cylender to keep it from rusting. I tried a search and couldn't find it though. I wanted to paint the timing cover and water pump with a clear coat. Should I use hi-temp? Can I use any clear for metal? I'm not looking for a gloss, just protection.
Thanks

I have always used clear powder coating for engine parts. It is extremely durable and does not yellow like many spray can products. More expensive that spraying but will last longer and look good longer.

I went with Eastwoods Disk Brake Caliper spray for the master cylinder, it seems to do a better job against brake fluid.
If you want to use a clear, it depends on whether you want gloss or flat. I've been playing with Eastwood's Diamond Clear flat, so far nothing bad to say.

I'll second the vote for Eastwood diamond clear flat.Used it to clear over the alumicast paint on the dizzy, master cylinder, and about a hundred other parts in the car and so far has held up.
