Oil Filter Housing paint help needed

As the pic shows, my oil filter housing needs either high temp clear coat and preserve the patina or, what color/number high heat orange paint would be a close match to the original?  

And I seem to recall a decal was on these. Is there a source for the decal?

    Brad, Try Valspar gloss red. # 64006. More like a chinese red.   The decals you can get from Jim Osborne decals in Georgia.

    If you are going with red then International Harvester red is a close match.  If you go with orange then Kubota Orange is a good match.  Both can usually be found at a Tractor Supply store.  
  • Ok thanks
  • Just curious, were some years red and some orange or, was it just an aftermarket buyer's choice?
