Actually, the black paint acts as a pretty decent primer, just make sure to get rid of any big chips or cracks in it. Wash it down with dish soap to get all the old crap off of it and spray it down with water. Next, use an air compressor to spray off all the extra crap and dry it. Spray it with whatever color you want, but make sure it is high temp engine block paint. Spray the first coat, wait 15-20, spray another, wait 30, spray another, wait 30, spray the last and wait about three hours. Bolt it all back on, making sure that your old valvecover gasket is still good and positioned correctly and you're good to go.
"Conventional wisdom would have one believe that it is insane to resist this, the mightiest of empires... but what history really shows is that today's empire is tomorrow's ashes, that nothing lasts forever, and that to not resist is to acquiesce in your own oppression. The greatest form of sanity that anyone can exercise is to resist that force that is trying to repress, oppress and fight the human spirit."
