Repainting MTH diesel engine question

I am planning to repainting an MTH Premier GP_38 engine. The current paint scheme is a Florida East Coast. I want to paint it into a Lehigh Valley scheme. The body of the engine has been removed and all trim and accessories have been removed so I have a bare shell.I have painted several engines in the past but never an MTH. I used ScaleCoat stripper as I have in the past. This stripper usually works very fast and gives a clean surface to work with. I tried the stripper with the MTH engine and it had no effect. Whatever paint MTH uses seems to be very tough.Since the Scale Coat stripper didn't work I tried Testors stripper and Magic Strip stripper. Same results.. I have used brake fluid in the past but I am reluctant to do so because it sometimes causes paint adhesion problems. Has anyone had experience stripping MTH engines and has any suggestion as to how I should go about it

Thanks Joe
