BMC green? I believe Moss carries it in a spray can. I have used Austin-Healey green from POR-15 on my Mini's engine which is also a 1964.

Yep BMC olive green, I suggest using Duplicolor Hi hgeat clear over the Moss engine paints, they tend to bleach if coolant ever gets on them. Here's picture of Drew's motor in BMC olive.

thanks for the reply. We will go with the Olive green.
