Prepare old stucco for paint?

Richard asked 5 years ago

I live in a old house with stucco exterior. Our house is in NW Kansas. The stucco is on top of a red clay block construction, I assume the house was built in the 30’s or 40’s I don’t know for sure.

What I need to know is how do I prep the surface of the stucco so that paint will stick to it without peeling after a year or two. I had an old timer tell me the use a lot of lime in stucco a along time ago and it requires special preparation before you can get paint to stick for any length of time. He didn’t seem to know what I needed to do. I was wondering if you could tell me what process I need to go threw to get paint to stick to my house.
