I use Plow Guard paint on my moldboards. It appears to have graphite in it and coats very well and dries fast . You don't have to clean it off before plowing either. Available in spray or brush on.

I’ve borrowed a product for the aviation world. LPS3. It’s a lubricant that really sticks to what it is sprayed on to. Protects my brinly plow in between plowing seasons.

I can vouch for LPS 3 as well. When I worked in tool & die, we used it to coat machined metal surfaces and protect them from rusting. LPS 1 and 2 are good products as well if you can find them.

I personally didn't like the ace international blue so I picked out their safety blue tons brighter but I like the contrast. Yes I know now not to paint the point, moldboard, and Colter and for rust prevention I've been using chainsaw bar oil no rust so far and it's been out side for a bit now

I just restored my 193 plow also. I used Majic Tractor, Truck, and Implement paint in a rattle can. Self etching primer first. I used Ford Blue. I couldn't really see the difference. I found the correct McCormick decal on Binderbooks ( ... H-M9RV.jpg), check it out. For the stencil, I bought a kit on ebay and used IH Yellow in a rattle can. My moldboard is a Chattanooga Plow Company - looks like yours may be a Plow Chief. If you're interested, here's a link to a Plow Chief decal from Maple Hunter ( Your plow looks great, by the way. Anyway, here's my plow:

My Uncle John coated all the tillage parts that came in contact with the soil with a heavy black grease. I'm thinking #90 gear grease but I don't know for sure. It was heavy enough it didn't drip off in the Indiana heat.
