From the pics I would suggest one more coat of green applied a bit heavier.  The danger in that is too much heavier and you get a run.  HOw many coats?

More coats will bring additional depth and they will also make the JD green look more green.  I think that is your biggest challenge at point with the paint.

I was thinking that, the JD green didn't quite look exactly dark enough, today I painted more parts and gave some a 2nd coat

 

Working on cleaning up the motor now and painting it

 

Got my JD parts from the dealer but now have to order more that I need

Two show green

Worked on engine cover sanding today and corrosion clean up, worked on fender corrosion also.

 

Painted engine parts

 

Slowly painting and putting parts back together, slow process

I am wondering if the early machines were green and the later machines were black.  Got no definites on this.  I would do what was original to the machine and in your case green would be my choice.
