Default paint job chipping, need advice

I am restoring a 1 1/2 jaeger engine. I grinded all the paint and rust off first. Then I went to autozone and bought a paint called"dupli-color Engine enamel with ceramic". I am restoring it for my dads birthday, but the paint on the fly wheel chips easily. I did not put primer on it ,but I going to start over on it. If any one has a better paint in mind,please let me know.

read the label, it probably needs primer. use a good industrial paint or automotive enamel. there are many on the market. look at paint in forums for advice.
