100 year old house painting

What kind of primer and paint do you use on a old house with yellow popular clapboard siding? planning to strip to the bare wood.

A high quality oil based primer and oil based paint. I usually use Sherwin-Williams. Try to avoid the self cleaning house paints, if they are still available. They self clean by chalking and running down the wall when it rains.

Oil-base primer and quality latex topcoats.

SW Duration is a favorite of mine.
