YOUR OPINION ON " GLYPTAL PAINT "

Hi Guys

Need your opinion on this very expensive engine paint. Also used for industrail equipment too.

Its called: GLYPTAIL don't ask me how to say it either . . . lol
All I know is I just paid a wooping 49.00 for a QUART !!!

And here's what I read in Mustang Monthly Mag. about this stuff. It comes in either spray or brush. What I'm going to do with it is this:
I just got my engine back from the machine shop. And this is a good time to use this paint.

First I'm going to chamfer the oil port return holes on the head. Next, here comes the GLYPTAL EMANMEL PAINT. Its red in color and I will paint the oil galley's it makes the area smooth as silk, its heat resistant, oil resistant and sticks like hell to metal. Making the oil reture quick to hot parts of my car. Also no iron particles will stick at the head.

Its called kinda BLUEPRINTING my engine.
Need to know what you guys think of this stuff.

THANKS GUYS
Schooner

GLYPTAL Paint

Glyptal paint has been around forever, it is used wherever you need a tough coat of paint that will stand up to heat. its used in a lot of industrial applica-
tions like electric motor windings, inside of valves, and for your benefit, gear-
cases. thats an old hotrodder trick to paint the inside of the block with glyptal. just be sure that it is completely clean and oil free. a lot of guys
have the block baked out before they put the glyptal on that way you get
as much of the oil out of the pores of the cast iron as possible. it will also
help with getting the oil to return to the pan.

Yes, it's good stuff. But you got ripped off on the price. Next time find an electric motor rebuilder or industrial supply. They sell for less than half that price..

I'll throw a small wrench in the works here. Glyptal is an insulator used on elect. motor and transformer windings. Oil in an engine conducts and transfers heat away from engine parts and cannot do this as efficiently with a insulator covering large surface areas. Maybe the benefits of faster oil return outweigh the negative effects of uneven engine temps? Just a thought, I could be way off base here.

also good to remember...if the inside of the block is painted, and the vehicle is left to set for a long time(such as off season in the frozen tundra) the corosion/rust issue in the inside of the block will not be much of an issue

I usually store my vehicles in a old borax mine in Death Valley especially during my winters on the tundra, and .357 brass fits nicely into oil galley holes too!
