Yamaha 5hp Reed Valve (1980s)

Wanted 5hp Reed Valve for a 1980s Yamaha 2 stroke outboard. It has the blue casing with stripes which I think is mid to late 80s.

It may well be. I am going to strip my one down to show the part as you have photographed it. Please hang on to the part until I can confirm if that's ok?
Many thanks
Andrew

No worries, pretty sure mines all complete, its a long shaft minus a gearbox. God compression etc. so should have some good bits on it.
